Cummins to be named Test captain

Pat Cummins is set to be named as Australia’s 47th male Test captain, in a major break from tradition for the top job in Australian cricket.

Former captain Steve Smith will serve as his deputy as part of a new leadership team to be installed after Tim Paine’s resignation last week.

Cummins had been the overwhelming favourite to take over from Paine, after being made the sole vice-captain 12 months ago.

It is Smith’s first official leadership position since being stripped of the captaincy after the ball tampering scandal in 2018.
