Australian captain Pat Cummins and vice captain Steve Smith are currently speaking to the media about their leadership positions.

Tweets to follow 👇
SS: I've been in a position for the last few years playing as a leader. Now to have the opportunity to be standing here next to Patrick with a formal title, I feel very honoured.
PC: It's going to be a real collaborative approach (to leadership). It might look a bit different from the outside compared to captain's of the past, which is great.
PC on his leadership style: I'm naturally quite a calm person. I'm quite positive. I'll be leaning on everyone. I'm a big one for empowering individuals to own their role (in the team).
PC: I very much doubt that I will rest from Test cricket. I have never rested from a game of Test cricket before, so I doubt that will start now.
PC: Mum and Dad were super excited, there were a few tears. It's a really special time. Everyone is really happy and proud.
SS: I think they're (England) a very strong squad. I think England have some quality players. They've got a well rounded side and I think it makes for an exciting series. We're chomping at the bit to get out there.
That's all from Pat and Steve for now.
