Australia head coach Justin Langer is not a part of the panel picked by Cricket Australia (CA) to pick the next Test skipper. As per a report in Sydney Morning Herald, a joint committee has been selected comprising CA’s chief executive Nick Hockley, chair Richard Freudenstein, and fellow director Mel Jones. The committee will now look at all the captaincy nominees before they go to the CA board. The entire process for picking the next skipper may take a week.

All the captaincy nominees will be interviewed by the joint committee where they will be asked to share their vision for the men’s Test team.

Tim Paine had stepped down as the captain of the side ahead of the much-awaited Ashes opener.

According to, Paine announced his resignation as Test skipper following revelations of a ‘sexting’ incident with a former Cricket Tasmania colleague in 2017.


Paine “deeply regretted” the incident and said he was “enormously” grateful to his wife and family for the forgiveness.

“I spoke to my wife and family at the time and am enormously grateful for their forgiveness and support. We thought this incident was behind us and that I could focus entirely on the team, as I have done for the last three or four years,” quoted Paine as saying.
