Whether or not Smith will be named captain again, this is the answer for Cricket Australia
Cricket Australia (CA) chairman Earl Eddings has ruled out any possibility of Steven Smith being named captain again. Smith has returned to the Australian team after a one-year ban. He played a key role in helping Australia win by 251 runs by scoring a century in both innings of the first Ashes Test against England.
