The Australian cricket team has been waiting for its new captain for the T20 format for a long time. Former captain Aaron Finch announced his retirement from cricket in February. Since then, Australia had not received a new captain in this format. But now Cricket Australia have announced their new T20 captain.

The Australian team has a new captain

Mitchell Marsh will captain Australia in the inaugural T20 series following the retirement of Aaron Finch. The Australian team will do a tour of South Africa. Where Marsh will be captain of the Australia team which is adorned with star players who have performed brilliantly in the BBL.

Entry into the team of these young players

Rising all-around star Aaron Hardie, BBL’s Player of the Tournament Matt Short and left-arm pacemaker Spencer Johnson are all set to make their international debuts during the three-game T20I series. Five ODIs will also be played on this tour in preparation for the World Championships. But in T20 cricket, the Australian Board decided to train a new generation.

5 old players got a place

At Australia’s last T20I, played last November, only five current players found a place in the squad. Captain Marsh, Steve Smith, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell and Adam Zampa were added to the 14-man roster.

Although Marsh has only been named South Africa Series captain, Cricket Australia has yet to announce a permanent replacement for Finch.
