Steve Smith has been named Australia’s new Test captain after the Ashes. The announcement comes following Michael Clarke’s decision to retire at the end of the series. This follows the side from Down Under’s defeat by England at Trent Bridge.

The 26-year-old already leads the one-day side and will also captain the Twenty20 team in the absence of Aaron Finch who is recovering from injury.

Fellow batsman David Warner will be vice-captain.

Smith, from New South Wales, has already captained Australia against India last summer and has played 32 Tests for his country.

Smith and Warner will lead Australia in the limited-overs matches after the final Ashes Test at the Oval in London later this month.
