On November 26, Pat Cummins etched his name in record books by becoming the first fast bowler to lead Australia in the longest format of the game.
Cummins was appointed as the skipper of the Australian Test side after Tim Paine stepped down last week and took an indefinite break from the sport following the 'sexting scandal'.
Australia's newly-appointed Test captain revealed that he was asked to share any secrets he might have had before he was handed the leadership role by the selection panel.
In an interview with ABC sport, Cummins was asked if Cricket Australia asked him 'anything like a confession" before being appointed as captain; and he replied in an affirmative without divulging much details.
"Yeah, there were a couple of questions. I won't go into detail. It was a really good open discussion. We talked about a lot of different things. So we both left it feeling really comfortable," he said.
The 28-year old will have the services of Steven Smith, who has been named as his deputy and will take charge from the gruelling Ashes series at home starting on December 8 at the Gabba.
