Australia announce new captain and vice-captain for ODIs and T20Is

Paine, who took over as test skipper after the Cape Town scandal, will lead Australia's 15-man squad for the one-day worldwide series in England in June.

Australia T20 squad: Ashton Agar, Alex Carey (vice-capt & wk), Aaron Finch (capt), Travis Head, Nic Maddinson, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson, D'Arcy Short, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Swepson, Andrew Tye, Jack Wildermuth. He had played one ODI against England in Paine's absence.

D'Arcy Short, the opener, who cracked 572 runs in the 2017-18 BBL and made his worldwide debut in a T20I versus New Zealand in January this year, has been included in the ODI squad for the tour of England.

Paine was named skipper of a 15-man squad for the five-match series, Australia's first since the ball-tampering scandal which led to lengthy bans for former Test and ODI captain Steve Smith, his deputy David Warner and batsman Cameron Bancroft.

He claims that what Ramos said is completely false and that the Argentine barely had any contact with the referee in the tunnel. And that is not to mention the many grievances against the referee, from both sides, that could have swung the result.

Finch, meanwhile has been named captain for the one-off T20I against England and the tri-nation T20I series against Zimbabwe and Pakistan in July.

As for the spinners, Nathan Lyon is back in the ODI side and will be joined by Ashton Agar, while leg-spinner Mitchell Swepson, who has yet to make his global debut, found a place in the Twenty20 squad.

"Alex is a very smart one-day player who can also bat anywhere in the order.With Tim in the side Alex will be the back-up wicket-keeper, but we believe his game is strong enough to play as a batter only", cricket.com.au quoted Hohns, as saying.

"England potentially have a number of left-handers in their side and we look forward to seeing what he can produce with the white-ball in English conditions".

Until this breakthrough, he had played in more playoff games than any player in league history without reaching this point (86). Holiday gathered a triple-double, scoring 27 points, dishing out 11 assists, and gobbling down 10 rebounds.

In a release put out by the, England's rise up the table is largely because the 2014-15 season has been dropped from the latest calculations while those from the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons are weighted at 50 per cent. 's side had a forgettable 2014-15 season where they won only seven out of 25 ODIs against other Full Members. Ashton Agar, the spinner all-rounder, has been named in both the squads, while emerging leg-spinner Mitchell Swepson was a surprise inclusion for the T20 lineup.

Australia's ODI squad: Tim Paine (c), Aaron Finch (vc), Alex Carey Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Nathan Lyon, Glenn Maxwell, Shaun Marsh, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson, D'Arcy Short, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye.

Nic Maddinson and uncapped batsman Jack Wildermuth also made the cut for the Twenty20 team. "He has shown excellent all-round skills at the first-class level, particularly with the ball in the Big Bash".

But it's understood his fielding capacity remains a concern with national selectors not convinced he has recovered to the level required for worldwide cricket. The Australian side will then embark on a tour to Zimbabwe for a T20I tri-series.
