Pat Cummins receives highest honour in world cricket - Australian Test Captaincy

International Captain
pretty disappointed with smith getting the VC unless that's where he stays, but it's a great day for australian cricket to see pat cummins get the top job

Most of them have said Shane was the best captain we never had but I believe McGrath was the best captain that Australia never had,It's been long time since Walsh,Pollock and Waqar we got a pace bowler as a captain.

whenever people say this they bring up like the one ODI where he was captaining whilst Waugh was off the field

McGrath seems dopey as dog **** when he talks. Much like Langer

You don't believe in second chances? Especially considering he was arguably least at fault of the Cape town 3

nobody believes in second chances more than me, he just wasn't a very good captain

like even before cape town i was saying this, he wasn't ever particularly good at doing the captaining itself

It's more that it showed how unsuited his personality is for it. As someone else said, it is not good for him as a person or for the Australian cricket team. Just let him score runs.

I know Smith is a little "eccentric" (not to Labuschagne levels mind you), but tbh nobody from the current team appears to me to be anything other than a sheltered athlete. Keep in mind these people have never had to do a normal 9-5 day ever

Paine was meant to be the adult in the room to guide the dillusionioned group of blokes out of this debacle and look what kind of person he turned out to be
