The role of a Leader in any organization is very important and the same for the Australian Cricket Association also because the Leaders after the ball-tampering scandal, the Australian Cricket Board is confusing to select the appropriate captain for the Australian team because Steve Smith was banned, they needed a new captain which leads the team from the front and also fulfills the gap which was not present due to absence of David Warner and Steve Smith. The Leader is very important because it is those people who communicate and interact with the team to work in a group and fulfill the policies and help to achieve the roles of every team member and work on plans to subordinate to start the work properly. Throughout sports, an athlete leader is defined as an individual who has an official or casual leadership location inside one squad which affects other participants in the achievement of shared goals.

They assist decrease ambiguity, impact and concentrate user focus but also production, give positive leadership behaviors and rules, and reinforce the experience and provide direction, transparency, participation, & purpose to all parties involved. Psychological qualities including such extroversion-introversion, monitoring, trying to think, and judging-perceiving may assist enlighten that woman’s inherent character. Also, with great man’s ideas of leadership in the twentieth century, this was thought that leaders are blessed with particular psychological attributes that make them respectable. This research shows that group efficiency overall goal achievement is linked to the leader’s management style, which has a major impact on employee behavior. This motivates them to work harder to work and see its leadership as effective. Personal attributes that discriminate against good leaders are denoted as control personalities (Deshwal & Ali, 2020).

The volume of an individual or corporation to help assess, teams, or administrations is mentioned as leadership. According to top the aims of either a firm as well as the market, working more towards the achievement of the goals. Although integrity, sincerity, and sincerity are all valuable leadership attributes, leaders must also be effective in reaching their objectives. Some leaders are effective in accomplishing their dreams because they can convince, inspire, engage and urge everybody else to take their advice. Ponting constantly set clear goals for his team as well as outlined how they would attain them. He accepted responsibility for the targets that were established as well as shared those only with the public and indeed the rest of the group (Vasilescu, 2019).

Captains are familiar with their players as well as their duties because they have some strategy in place for them. Captains are familiar with the respective bowler that knows what pitches to prepare for them. For approximately a century, cricket was a vital component of Australian culture. This is extremely fixed in Australian culture & component of its collective mind (Deshwal & Ali, 2020).

Harnessing your team’s skills might be difficult, however, the most effective leaders collaborate with respective employees to get the best outcomes. Irrespective of it never ‘to-do’ list, one must keep overall momentum, remain prepared to accept chances, & create choices to reach your objectives. It’s critical to keep in mind that it’s either obvious or straightforward. Involve everyone in the strategy was utilized, but also teammates using factors that contribute towards the common objective. Keep their goals obvious throughout your whole project and get only based on a protracted approach. Make regular engagement among some of the group’s many segments (Demirtas & Karaca, 2020).

Take the essential steps and keep track of your development regularly. Concentrate on the Organizational culture. Make an extra effort in learning about the company’s culture; it will help you to figure out that use their team’s attitudes, talents, perspectives, or beliefs to reach bigger goals. Try your best to collaborate and foster a climate of mutual trust and respect. Engage your teammates and convey that you care about them as individuals. Clarify the goals’ purpose and stress-specific contribution to overall aims. To express thankfulness for outstanding work, create annual employee initiatives. Create a friendly environment that values diversity and collaboration. Encourage your team(s) to claim ownership of their objectives. Instead of exerting strong control & requiring your staff to obtain permission for every tiny task, give everyone a chance to operate independently. Encourage your employees to think creatively. Offer the flexibility so that they may make changes. Responsibilities and authorities, but set clear limits (Vasilescu, 2019).

Following were the leadership traits and characteristics are as follows:

Increasing trust is need to be applied within the organization to fulfill the desire of the organization (Demirtas & Karaca, 2020).


Some theories are needed in the new Test captains of Australia as per the requirement in its leadership style which is as follows:

1) Contingency Theory

This theory is explaining whether this is perfect as per the situation of the work. And as per the requirement of the ideas, it would be applied in every leadership style and the appropriate style of leadership is needed to include in the academic format and which provides the balancing in the behaviors and appropriate objectives as well as the circumstances (Huihui, 2018).

The Appropriate leader doesn’t have good attributes but they have always there to support its team and work in a team whenever any situation is raised. At the last, the Contingency theory plays an important role in the Australian team selecting a good leader because it would provide exceptional leadership and it shows the result of interactions of the complex at various factors (Huihui, 2018).

2) The Situational Theory

This Situational Theory is connected to the Contingency Theory because it claims that no solitary leadership style seems greater than all the alternatives. Even as the title indicates, this mindset of effective leadership is conditional here on context. In simple terms, leadership should still match its leadership to the particular scenario by examining specific elements including the sort of work, the character of members, and much more. Primarily presented by US academic Paul Hersey with leadership expert Ken Blanchard, this situational theory integrates two critical elements: the overall style of leadership as well as the supporters’ characteristics (Manyuchi & Sukdeo, 2021).

3) Behavioural Theory

This same focus of Behavioral theory seems to be on leadership’s particular traits but also deeds then instead of its attributes. As per the requirement, and good team leading doesn’t come from the talent it would need to be included with proper perfection and with hard work and during that time 3 things are necessary to include which areas technical, human, & intellectual.  Technical skills affect something like a leader’s empathy of a course or procedure; social times mention someone’s skill to participate with everyone else, and abilities relate to the leader’s asked to originate up with fresh concepts about successfully functioning its corporation or culture (Manyuchi & Sukdeo, 2021).
