David Warner has been named as the new vice-captain for Australia in tests. As soon as Michael Clarke announced his retirement from Tests, Steve Smith has been made as the captain in Tests. According to the latest reports, Cricket Australia is they have made their opening batsman David Warner as the vice-captain.

The 28-year-old also pointed to his recent captaincy experience as having readied him for further leadership honours. 

“I had my first captain experience in the IPL this year,” Warner said on Tuesday about his tenure leading Sunrisers Hyderabad to the cusp of the IPL semi-finals with a team that included Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan, South African speedster Dale Steyn and Australian allrounder Moises Henriques.

“I felt like I had the team going in the right direction and I got some great feedback from the coaching staff and guys like (former India Test batsman) VVS Laxman and Murali (Sri Lanka’s record-breaking spin bowler Muthiah Muralidaran) as well, so it was pleasing to hear that.

“And being captained by (New South Wales teammate) Moises Henriques as well – he came up to me saying I did a great job, which is always a great thing to hear.

“Definitely if the opportunity (to be vice-captain) arises I’d love to take that, but obviously at the end of the day I’ve got to do my job for the team, which is to score runs.”
