Australia took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series by winning the first two games of the three-match T20 series played on the tour of New Zealand. This game showcased the all-round performance of Pat Cummins for Australia where he not only played an innings of 28 runs with the bat at a crucial juncture but also took a wicket while bowling. Australia won this game by 72 runs. Cummins was also awarded Player of the Match for his outstanding performance. During this time he also answered the question about captaining the Australian team in T20 International.

Focus on bowling

Pat Cummins scored just 19 runs in 3 overs bowling and took 1 wicket in the second T20 match against New Zealand. When asked if I would be captain after the game, Cummins replied that I was really enjoying it. I hadn’t fielded on the border for a long time. I just concentrate more on my bowling. I always enjoy batting in this format. There was help for the bowlers on this wicket which we took advantage of in the second innings. I’ve played here before too. Let us tell you that in this match, the Australian team who batted first were restricted to 174 runs while New Zealand, who were chasing the target, were finished after scoring just 102 runs.

Australia has not yet named their regular captain in T20

Although the T20 World Cup is scheduled to be played in June this year, Australia has not yet named its regular T20 captain. Following Aaron Finch’s retirement from this format, Australia played under the captaincy of Mitchell Marsh, in which they played at home in the T20 series against South Africa and then West Indies. In such a situation, the Australian selectors have almost made it clear that the responsibility of captaincy in this format will continue to rest on Marsh’s shoulders.
