Australia’s white-ball captain Aaron Finch was on Tuesday managed out of the debut One-day International against the West Indies on Wednesday because of a knee injury and Alex Carey will wear the job of the skipper, as per Cricket Australia.
Australia have lost the T20I series to the hosts 1-4 and would hope to turn the fortunes in the three-match ODI series.
Finch had been dealing with an issue with his right knee for quite a while till he curved it while handling in the last T20I on July 17.
The 34-year-old needed to momentarily leave the ground. Finch showed up in uneasiness in a pursuit of 200, particularly when running between the wickets briefly a sudden spike in demand for a defeat.
Finch’s physical issue will be evaluated on an everyday premise.
“I am deeply honoured to be able to lead the team while Aaron recovers. To captain Australia is one of the greatest privileges in sport and an honour I am extremely thankful to receive,” said by Alex Carey as quoted by cricinfo.com
“Finch is our captain and we will welcome him back with open arms when he is fully fit, so for now I hope I can fill the role to his extremely high standards. To lead this group against the West Indies in the West Indies is a great challenge and one I very much look forward to for as long as I have the opportunity,”further added by him.
Alex Carey has so far addressed Australia in 42 ODIs and 33 T20Is since the time he had first blasted onto the scene at the most significant level in January 2018. The southpaw has amassed 1,091 and 198 runs in the two organisations.
The South Australian cricketer is referred to for his job as a ‘finisher and he has completed the salvage act by dealing with Australia’s delicate center request on a couple of events also.
