Pat Cummins, Australia’s star fast bowler and number one in the Test rankings, has announced his World Test XI squad. They include four players from Australia and India, one each from New Zealand, South Africa and England. Cummins has not mentioned any player on this team as a leader. The highlight of this team is Rishabh Pant as the wicketkeeper. Pant was instrumental in winning the team by showing a good game against Australia and then England a while ago.
Kiran More and Virat Kohli can leave Rohit Sharma’s leadership in a divided leadership
Cummins has selected David Warner and Rohit Sharma as openers in the squad. These two players have achieved unparalleled milestones in their limited overs cricket. Speaking of the team’s middle order, this team is probably one of the strongest teams because it includes players like Virat Kohli, Steve Smith and Kane Williamson, who are currently regarded as the best batsmen in the world. Hah. Cummins did not include England’s Joe Root, whose name was included in the ‘Fab Four’. This decision is somewhat surprising.
