Finch Kicks off As Australia T20 Skipper

SYDNEY: Aaron Finch is to be kicked off as Australia’s captain in the shortest kind of the game and replaced by test skipper Steve Smith merely a month before the initiation of the World T20.

Opener Finch, who has been doing struggles with a hamstring wound, was named captain in the month of September 2014 but merely skippered the side on six events as Australia focused on other forms of the game.

Cricket Australia will not elaborate details of the make-up of the squad for the tournament, which takes place in the state India from March 8-April 3, until it is declared in New Zealand on the day of Tuesday.

Australia have never won the World T20 title in 5 last attempts, their best finish coming in West Indies in the year 2010 when they lost to England in the final.
