Tim Paine has resigned as Australia’s Test captain following allegations that he sent obscene messages to a woman in his squad. In the wake of his resignation, there has been widespread interest in who the new leader will be. The prestigious Ashes series will begin in a few days. Cricket Australia (CA) is in the process of selecting an effective captain. However, there are reports that the team’s fast bowler Pat Cummins is almost certain to be the Aussie Test captain. It seems that Cricket Australia will also make an official announcement on his selection soon.
Similarly, Cummins is likely to be replaced by Steve Smith as vice-captain. The Ashes series with England starts on December 8. Cricket Australia has already announced a 15-man squad to captain Tim Pine. Cummins was the vice-captain. However, in the light of the latest developments, he will take over as captain. It remains to be seen whether Pine, who has been criticized for his poor performance, will retain his place in the team with the latest allegations. Richie Benaud captained the Aussies in 1964 as the team’s fast bowler. No bowler has captained Australia since then. It’s going to be history if Cummins is handed the leadership responsibilities.
