Tim Paine: Pat Cummins’ mission is to heal Australia

Read Time:3 Minute, 2 Second

Cummins will be supported by the new deputy captain Steve Smith, who will return to his official leadership role for the first time since losing his captainship in the 2018 Newlands ball tampering scandal.

As the deputy captain of former captain Payne, Cummins is considered to be the candidate to succeed the goalkeeper, who withdrew from all cricket on Friday after the “sex texting” scandal was exposed for a “mental health break.”

However, given that Australia almost always likes a batter to be captain, this appointment is still notable.

Cummins became the second fast bowler to serve as team captain after Ray Lindwall, who led the team to a test against India in the mid-1950s.

Cummins told reporters on the team’s Gold Coast: “There are still some unknowns about having a bowling captain, which is why I think from the beginning I’m absolutely sure if I’m the captain, let someone like Steve be by my side. Serve as deputy captain.” According to.

“I think I have a lot of experience to learn from. I think there are many problems or potential problems in becoming a fast bowling team captain. Hope-I believe we can solve the problems.”

Cummins is popular, photogenic and amiable in public, becoming captain ten years after his 18-year-old sensational test debut, when he played seven games with the Rangers and helped defeat South Africa.

Due to the injury, he had to wait for nearly six years before the next test, but he is now among the best in the world bowling test rankings.

TOPSHOT-On the fifth day of the fourth cricket test match between Australia and India in Gaba, Brisbane, on January 19, 2021, Australia captain Tim Paine was watching the match.

‘Old wound’

Cummins’ appointment was welcomed by former players and authority figures, but Smith’s promotion in the “Sandpaper Gate” three years later was not recognized by some.

Smith completed a 12-month ban on international players and a two-year ban on leadership positions last year.

Former spinner Shane Warne completely opposed Smith’s promotion, saying it would invite ridicule.

Vaughan wrote in a News Corporation column: “We now need to enter the ashes with clean slates, not open old wounds.”

Smith, who was sitting next to Cummins in a white team Polo shirt, said he knew there would be “negative emotions.”

“But for me, I know that I have grown a lot in the past three or four years,” he said.

“I am a more comprehensive person, and in turn, I think this makes me a better leader.

“I am very happy to be in this position next to Patrick.”

One of the two’s first tasks is to help the selector pick a goalkeeper before the Ashes opener in Brisbane on December 8.

The uncapped duo of Alex Carey and Josh Inglis and Matthew Wade are touted as potential replacements for Paine, and Paine’s international future is now being questioned.

From then on, Cummins and Smith will need to quickly figure out how they work together on the court.

While serving as captain faster than planned, Cummins served as the New South Wales captain’s apprenticeship in a one-day domestic game.

Like Paine who succeeded Smith after the Newlands scandal, Cummins was described by the media as “clean skin”, a poster boy who can help Australia get rid of the scandal.

Cummins said he was not entirely satisfied with these titles.

Cummins said: “I think this might be really popular in the past few days, see Tim (Payne).”

“A lot of pressure and perfect responsibilities are unreasonable. I think there are too many demands on anyone.

“I think we have to be kinder and more understanding sometimes.”
