Then you'd get Davey Dumb dumb as captain, you really want this? Or you want Moody to take Boof's job as well and replicate his captain coach role from Sunrisers for Straya?

Really, you're stealing the Australia's World Series Cricket song? WSC even clashed with an Ashes series.

Well I'll say this much, Davey has learned to trust his spinners bowling more than Smith BUT thats cos Davey doesn't speak the language of most his bowlers and just ends up fielding at long on and leaves then to set their own fields and do their own thing. That said - it did enable Mustafizur and R Khan to shine. So there is something to be said for player automomy. But t20 flows much faster than test where wicket taking strategy in a grind is far more paramount than run rate.

Still not sure Davey is a good idea as Straya's captain. I can see him being very friendly to his mates in selections.

Fortunately Davey is not eligible for that role.
