    Smith was a pretty ordinary tactical captain imo and even pre-SA seemed not emotionally suited to the demands of captaincy. Should only be a last resort.

    I would, although not for the stupid reasons that casuals would

    It'd be pretty funny if they did it.

    During sandpaper gate, I thought the appropriate action would be to not ban Smith for any further games but simply strip him of the captaincy for the rest of his career. If they hand him the captaincy, it'll be the literal opposite of what I think would've been the right course of action.

    Yeah I wouldn't even have done it as a punishment. The captaincy was quite clearly weighing him down mentally and he was just plain not good at it. Win-win for all involved.

    Is Smith not banned for been captain for a certain length of time?

    The next senior batsman is Usman which could be a decent PR move,, but doesn't really strike me as captain material and not exactly a lock for the next few years.

    I for one like the guy but the current captains are probably the worst Ashes captains ever in the same series.

    He got away for a long time being just kind of anodyne but people now actively dislike him haha.

    Him getting randomly picked as first choice when he was on the verge of packing it in, and then being catapulted into the captaincy job is a pretty bizarre story when you think of it.

    I was thinking how he'd be the luckiest bastard in the world if Australia won this Ashes despite his woeful captaincy earlier. Well, now I feel sort of bad for him.

    Worth noting Usman is the captain of Queensland when he does play for them. Problem is he's not entrenched in the side....

    I think so, but equally he's not quite a Best XI lock yet. Close but you'd want the captain to be a Best XI lock.

    That pretty much narrows it down to just Smith
