Recent events Australia played their first Test match under new coach Justin Langer and a new leadership group, which featured Tim Paine as Australia's 46th Test captain, on October 7, 2018. Previous leaders Steve Smith and Michael Clarke were removed from their positions after being found guilty of using banned substances during their tenure as captain.
Paine, who was previously vice-captain, led the team in Smith's absence due to suspension. He also became the first player from Tasmania to lead Australia when he took over from Clarke following his own retirement from international cricket. Paine announced his retirement from all forms of cricket following the conclusion of the series against India, but he returned for the final game of the home season in the 2017-18 Ashes.
Paine had been working with former captain Smith on his batting technique before he retired from playing and took over the role of leader when Clarke stepped down. Paine was appointed as captain in addition to his role as vice-captain, meaning he will be responsible for leading the side in both test matches and one-day games. He is expected to be assisted by fellow vice-captains Cameron Bancroft (batting) and Mark Taylor (bowling).

Gregory, David William,David William Gregory (15 April 1845–4 August 1919) was a cricketer from Australia. Gregory, a right-handed batter, was the first Australian national cricket captain, captaining the side in the first three recognized Test matches between England and Australia in March, April, and January 1877. He was also one of the founders of the Melbourne Cricket Club.
Australia's first Test match victory came at the first attempt against an English team, and it was also the first time that an Australian team had beaten their opponents within Australia. The match was played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and resulted in a draw. It is this result that makes it possible to say that Gregory led Australia to their first Test match victory.
He was born in Sydney, New South Wales, the son of a wealthy landowner, and educated at Fort Street School in Sydney. He made his first-class debut for New South Wales against England in 1870-71, and scored 100 runs with a best of 50. He then toured India with a British team in 1872-73, making two appearances as a middle-order batsman. On his return he joined a group of young sportsmen who formed the Melbourne Cricket Club, and became one of its most successful players. In 1877, he led the Australian team to success on their first tour of England, where they played four matches against local sides. They returned home with three victories and a tie game.

The first inter-colonial cricket match in Australia took place in 1851, when a team from Victoria traveled to Tasmania. The match was contested on the 11th and 12th of February, 1851, at Launceston Racecourse, and Victoria won by three wickets. Up to 1955, Tasmania and Victoria met three times. South Australia played its first match against Victoria in 1877. Western Australia first played against South Australia in 1897. New South Wales began playing interstate matches in 1856.
Australia's first Test match was played between Australia and England at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne. Australia won the match by an innings and 39 runs. It is now considered a historic match because it was the first time that two international teams had played each other outside England. The second Test match was also held at Melbourne Cricket Ground. This time, Australia lost but still managed to win the series 1-0.
Australia's first World Cup final was also held at Melbourne Cricket Ground. The Australian team beat England by one run in the final ball of the game. Charles Bannerman scored Australia's only run while Victor Richardson took five wickets for 21 runs in the match. The ground has also seen many famous matches including the first Test match between Australia and India at the venue. This was followed by another match between these two countries at the MCG ten years later. In all, Melbourne Cricket Ground has hosted four One Day Internationals and two Test matches.
India toured Australia in 1971-72.

His bowling came after the opening pair had been dismissed, so he did not get enough opportunity to prove himself as a bowler. He died in 1935 aged 58.
Murdoch played ten Tests from 1896 to 1899, scoring six centuries and taking 12 wickets at an average of 20.83 with a best performance of 5/40.

After leaving Australia he played one final season for Somerset before dying in a road accident in England in 1900, aged 36.
Ferris played eight Tests from 1900 to 1901, scoring four half-centuries and taking seven wickets at an average of 28.57 with a best performance of 3/30. After ending his career in Australia he went on to play two Tests for England against Australia in 1907. He died in 1912 aged 45.
