Wicketkeeper Matthew Wade will commander Australia for the five-match Twenty20 series against Bangladesh which starts Tuesday in Dhaka.
Customary skipper Aaron Finch left the Australian bio-secure air pocket for their voyages through the Caribbean and Bangladesh, flying home from Barbados to have a minor surgery on his harmed right knee.
Cricket Australia said Monday that Finch desires to be good for the T20 World Cup in India from Oct. 17 to Nov. 14.
Alex Carey took over for Finch in the new one-day internationals against the West Indies, a series which Australia won 2-1. Carey could in any case play against Bangladesh as an expert hitter, as he did in Australia’s new T20 4-1 series rout toward the West Indies in St Lucia.
Swim has captained broadly at homegrown level with Victoria, Tasmania and the Hobart Hurricanes.
The five matches are compacted into not exactly seven days, with different games set for Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and next Monday, all at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.
