Paine announced his decision to resign the captaincy last week after it was revealed he had been the subject of a misconduct investigation in 2018 for sending sexually explicit text messages to a female colleague the previous year.

Posting on Twitter, new skipper Cummins wrote: I feel incredibly honoured, privileged and excited to be named the Australian Men Test Captain. I will do my best and can’t wait to start the Gabba in a few weeks! I am also very lucky to have my husband @steve_smith49 next to me as VC. #ash

Australia will kick off their Ashes series against England on December 8, with the first match taking place at The Gabba in Brisbane.

Who could replace Tim Paine as wicketkeeper?

Australia will now need a new wicketkeeper for the series, who could gift a Test debut to Leeds born glove man Josh Inglis.

The 26-year-old plays first-class cricket for Western Australia as well as T20 for the Perth Scorchers.

Alternatively, 30-year-old Alex Carey could get the nod.
