Steve Smith and Pat Cummins were the top contenders for the captaincy after Tim Paine stepped down from his leadership duties due to his alleged involvement in a sexting scandal. Following the announcement of the new captaincy, the former Australian spinner in his column slammed Cricket Australia for appointing Steve Smith as vice-captain of Australia’s Test cricket team.
Although the former spinner Shane Warne called Steve Smith one of the best batters around the world, he slammed Cricket Australia for giving the 32-year-old cricketer a second chance after the sandpaper gate scandal. Shane Warne went on to say that Marnus Labuschagne should have been the vice-captain.
Along with David Warner and Cameron Bancroft, Steve Smith were handed bans by Cricket Australia for their role in the sandpaper gate ball-tampering episode in Cape Town, which rocked Australian cricket in 2018.
