I don't see too much of a problem for Cummins, with Smith as his deputy.

It's not as if PC will have to do all the thinking, having an ex Test captain as his V-C.

^ The problem is not for Cummins, but for cricket and society in general.

There was always a risk the monster would be thrust back into temp captaincy. It sends atrocious signals to kids everywhere.

And on the other side too. I have no objections to most of what Ben does on-field. But he almost killed a bloke in Bristol in a drunken rage. If Rooty misses, he'll be temp captaining too.

Sad for the world. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Donny, yeah, I've made mistakes...

But...

I'm pretty sure I've never almost bashed a man to death in a drunken rage outside a bar, all caught on video.

IIRC, I never cheated repeatedly in cricket matches, not just through ball tampering but also TV reviews, etc. (But true, I didn't have the opportunity to cheat by trying to get TV feedback from the dressing room before deciding whether to go for a TV review. There was no TV review at any level of cricket in my time!!)

I'm also pretty sure I never threw my teammates under the bus. I never threw under the bus the equivalent of Maxwell. Maxwell later had mental health issues (maybe not caused by being thrown under the bus by his captain, but obviously not helped by it). I never threw under the bus the equivalent of Cummins either. I didn't post 'bout it here a few months ago... but the cricket journos were astonished at what Smith said about Cummins re. captaincy etc. (This was when Cricket NSW threw their weight behind Cummins by making him NSW captain.)


Captaincy is a privilege, not a birthright. Warne is right about Smith and captaincy.

You also don't have a Test batting average of over 60. You just don't seem to like people with talent. It's quite sad, really.

^ You are clueless in correctly identifying talent.

And jealous too!! Laughing

I just know you were stewing in your anger earlier this Test when Oz's best batsman, Marny, scored a century. Laughing

I know it 'cos that's what happened last season against India. You were obviously jealous of "good average" Marny's success when Smith was failing. (Smith of course has failed against all nations except England for the past 4 years. He now cannot even FTB except against England.)

Great to see Smith lead Australia to their largest-ever win by runs over the West Indies.
