Pat Cummins to lead Australia in ODIs
Pat Cummins replaces Aaron Finch as Australia’s new ODI captain
Pat Cummins has been announced as Australia’s new ODI captain following the retirement of Aaron Finch. Cummins being the captain of the Australian Test side has prior leadership experience and was the ideal man for the role of the ODI captaincy as well.
With just one year left for the ODI World Series, the decision was taken by the Australian Cricket Board on Tuesday, October 18.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed playing under Finchy and have learnt an enormous amount from his leadership. They are significant shoes to fill although we are extremely fortunate to have a one-day squad with a huge amount of experience," the new captain quoted in the Australian Cricket Board press release.
Commenting on the nomination, the Chair of Selectors George Bailey said: "Pat has done an excellent job since taking on the captaincy of the Test side and we look forward to him leading the one-day team to the 2023 World Series in India."
Team Australia are scheduled to play England in three One Day Internationals starting from November 17, soon after the T20 World Series and then are set to clash with the Proteas at home in January.
