Following Aaron Finch’s retirement, Pat Cummins has been named Australia’s new ODI captain. Cummins has already held the position of captain for the Test team. With one year until the next ODI World Cup, Cricket Australia’s decision, which was made public on Tuesday, October 18, is quite important.
“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,” Cummins was quoted as saying in a Cricket Australia media release.
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 Cup in India.”
