Unfortunately there is no obvious choice for captain. Warner is an individualist and should not be burdened with the role, Smith - tried and found wanting because he couldn't or wouldn't exercise proper control in SA; Harris, Labuschagne and Green too inexperienced, Head and Khawaja both fighting over one spot, Paine - enough said, Cummins, Starc, Hazelwood and Lyon, no captaincy experience.
I'm glad that I don't have to choose the captain. Whoever gets the nod is on a hiding to nothing. Cummins is the most probable.
The huge problem with this mess is that the plethora of coaches surrounding the team will end up with far more on-field influence than they should have. Why we need batting, bowling and fielding coaches for a Test team is absolutely beyond me. Nobody playing Test cricket should need coaching; if he/she does, it's go back to District/Club level and learn the game.
In South Africa we had the ultimate horrible example; 16 players and 22 support staff.
By huge contrast, Don Bradman led a five-month tour to England in 1948 with 17 players, a manager, a masseur and a scorer/baggage man, and the team played six days a week, finishing undefeated. Years later, Ian Chappell said, " I had it easy; there was only one person (the manager) whom I had to tell to p1ss off."
