ODI series between IND and AUS: Pat Cummins will stay at home, and Steve Smith will continue to serve as skipper

As Australia announced that Pat Cummins would not travel to India after missing the final two Tests, Steve Smith would continue to serve as captain for the three-match one-day international series starting later this week.

After the second Test in Delhi, Cummins left the tour to take care of his mother Maria, who passed away from breast cancer last week as the final game was being played in Ahmedabad.

As a result of leading the Test team in their final two games of the season, which ended in draws at the Narendra Modi Stadium and gave the hosts a 2-1 series lead, Smith will continue to serve as captain.
