Pat Cummins: Steven Smith should not replace David Warner as opener

1 min read

Cummins has engaged in informal conversations about the future of the top order, despite not being a selector. Smith confirmed his desire to move up in the batting order to fill Warner’s position, but convincing the selectors may be challenging. Cummins expressed contentment with Smith’s performance at No. 4 and believes it may not be ideal to disrupt the current lineup. Warner’s Test career concluded, and selectors are set to meet to determine his successor. Cummins acknowledges the difficulty of replacing Warner, especially matching his scoring rate. Shane Watson and Labuschagne have endorsed the prospect of Smith moving up the order, while Labuschagne considers himself and several other players as potential replacements. Cummins is pleased with Australia’s response under pressure by Pakistan and commends Pakistan’s high-quality performance.
