AUS vs WI: Steve Smith will take over Australia’s command after one year, 33-year-old bowler also got ‘lottery’ due to injury of Pat Cummins

Australia Vs West Indies, 2nd Test Match: Steve Smith last took charge of the Australian Cricket Team in December 2021.

Australia Vs West Indies: Steve Smith has been handed over the captaincy of the Australian Cricket Team after one year. Steve Smith has been named in charge of the team for the second Test against the West Indies by Cricket Australia after Pat Cummins failed to recover from injury. Due to the injury of Pat Cummins, 33-year-old bowler Scott Michael Boland also got a lottery.

Scott Boland, who made his debut in December 2021, has played only 3 Test matches so far in his career. Boland last played in a Test match against England in Hobart in January 2022. Boland took 4 wickets for 51 runs in that match. Steve Smith last took charge of the Australian cricket team in December 2021 before this. That test match was played against England in Adelaide. Australia won that match by 275 runs. Then Steve Smith got the responsibility of captaining the team due to Pat Cummins being out due to the Kovid-19 protocol. The captaincy was taken from Steve Smith in March 2018 after the sandpaper scandal. Steve Smith has so far captained Australia in 94 (35 Tests, 51 ODIs and 8 T20) international matches. Out of this, Australia has won 48 and lost 37. Six matches ended in a draw, while 3 did not result.

Pat Cummins Has Muscle Strain

Cummins, the spearhead of Australia’s pace attack, has a hamstring strain. He could not bowl on the final day of the first Test. Australia won the first Test by 164 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series. Cricket Australia has included 33-year-old Scott Boland in the squad as a replacement for Cummins, while Smith has been given the responsibility of captaincy in the day-night Test.

Pat Cummins May Return In Brisbane Test

Cricket Australia said in a statement, ‘The team medical staff began the process of Cummins’ recovery in Adelaide but the selectors believed that it was necessary for this fast bowler to be fully fit for the match starting tomorrow. There wasn’t enough time. Cummins is expected to return to the team for the first Test against South Africa in Brisbane.
