How Many Tests Has Pat Cummins Led Australia to Victory in As Captain?

Under Pat Cummins’ leadership, Australia finally defeated South Africa in a test series in their own territory after a long streak of 16 years. Some people were surprised when Cummins was initially selected as the test captain of the team, but it is undeniable that the Australian team has performed admirably under his leadership.

Prior to the Ashes last year, Tim Paine‘s involvement in the sexting incident and subsequent removal as the team’s test captain dealt the Australian team a setback. The Ashes were Cummins’ first task, and he performed admirably in that role as captain as Australia won the series 4-0.

The series was won by Australia in Pakistan, where they afterward traveled, and it was also drawn by Australia in Sri Lanka. The Australian team performed flawlessly in its home test series victories against the West Indies and South Africa. Recently, he was also named the team’s captain for the ODIs.

As Australia’s test captain, Pat Cummins has a stellar track record. Under his leadership, the Australian team has won 12 of the 12 matches it has played. It is safe to argue that Australia has performed admirably under the tall pacer’s captaincy.

Winning a test series in Pakistan is unquestionably a significant accomplishment for the Australian team because it has not always been simple to triumph in subcontinental conditions. Although Australia has consistently had difficulty playing in Sri Lankan conditions, they were able to tie the series thanks to Cummins.
