Why Pat Cummins isn’t cricket legend Brett Lee’s ideal pick for the captaincy
The beginning of the Ashes Test series is only two sleeps away.
Cricket legend Brett Lee broke down the major issues leading into the series, including the sexting scandal distraction, Mitchell Starc’s abilities and Pat Cummins’ captaincy.
He told Jim Wilson “Australia’s greatest fast bowler” wouldn’t have been his ideal pick due to the increased workload.
“He has got great leadership qualities … [but] I’m just worried it’s going to put too much pressure on his bowling.
“You’ve got to think about all the other things that go with it as well.”
