Australia have many big hitters in their side, which make them a favorite to win the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 Down Under.

Ricky Ponting has backed Australia’s Test captain Pat Cummins to replace Aaron Finch as team’s new ODI captain.

Finch retired from one-day internationals after home series against New Zealand.

“Pat Cummins will replace Aaron Finch,” Ponting told host Sanjana Ganesan on The ICC Review.

“I know he doesn’t play all the ODIs because of his workload management. The selectors want to keep Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc fit for the upcoming Test matches,” he added.

“But look, I’d be surprised if it wasn’t Pat Cummins.”

Steve Smith was banned from leading Australia for two years, while his deputy David Warner was given a lifelong leadership ban for their involvement in the 2018 ball-tampering scandal in South Africa.
