Test skipper Pat Cummins rules himself out of ODI captaincy race

Australia Test skipper Pat Cummins is not ready to captain Australia in one-day internationals. He feels it is impossible to lead the national team across formats.

The captaincy debate started after Aaron Finch retired from ODIs. Finch will continue to lead the team in T20Is as Australia aim to defend its ICC T20 World Cup title.

David Warner, Steve Smith and Pat Cummins are the top contenders to replace Finch.

“Leading Australia in all the formats is not realistic. Cummins was quoted as saying by The West Australian. “As a fast bowler, you need to manage your workload. Also, I haven’t thought about leading the team,” he said.

“I don’t think they (Cricket Australia) need to rush into any decision,” added Cummins, who guided his side to a 4-0 Ashes win followed by a 1-0 Test series in Pakistan. The series against Sri Lanka ended 1-1.

Cummins had recently urged Cricket Australia (CA) to lift the leadership ban on David Warner.
