Melbourne : Test captain Tim Paine will lead Australia’s one-day side for their limited-overs tour of England in June.
Wicketkeeper Paine replaces Steve Smith – who was banned by Cricket Australia for a year following the ball-tampering scandal – for the five-match series.
His vice-captain, batsman Aaron Finch, will lead the Twenty20 side in their sole match against England.
National selector Trevor Hohns said a permanent ODI captain would be appointed “in due course”.
The tour of England, which runs from 13-27 June, will be Justin Langer’s first assignment as head coach.
