Sydney, Nov 22 Former Australia captain Michael Clarke feels it is the right time for fast bowler Pat Cummins to take over the skipper's job in the Test team following Tim Paine's sensational resignation from the post over a 'sexting' scandal last week. Pat Cummins is the frontrunner to captain Australia in the upcoming home Ashes series against England, after growing calls from former players with Clarke being the latest to join the list that includes the likes of Shane Warne, Adam Gilchrist and even current England seamer James Anderson. Clarke feels Cummins will be the right man for the job and will have plenty of senior players to guide him in his new role if he is given the responsibility in Tests by Cricket Australia. Vice captain Cummins, 28, has taken 164 wickets in 32 test for Australia since making his debut in 2011. "If we were three or five years on it might be different. But with so much seniority in the team, I think it is the right time for him. Because they can help him. "Steve Smith, David Warner, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell.
