Former England captain Michael Vaughan has said that he has never thought that a fast bowler can lead the team due to the heavy workload but he feels that Australian speedster Pat Cummins is the type of person who will be a successful captain.

Pacer Pat Cummins was appointed as the new captain of Australia Men’s Test Team after Tim Paine stepped down from his role following the sexting scandal and decided to take an indefinite break from all cricket.

Vaughan took to Twitter to assert that Cummins is a calm person and a high-class player and he can do the job for Australia in Tests. Vaughan wrote:

“Never been one to think Quick Bowlers can be Captains. The workload the reason why it’s more difficult but I do think @patcummins30 looks the type of person who could make it work .. Very calm personality & obviously high-class player so it should work .. #Ashes,”
