Aaron Finch is Australia's white-ball captain after it was today announced he will lead the 50-over squad in the Gillette ODI Series against South Africa next month.
Finch, already Australia's T20 skipper, has been handed the reins in place of Tim Paine, who has been dropped from the one-day squad.
Australia's ODI squad for Proteas series: Aaron Finch (c), Josh Hazlewood (vc), Alex Carey (vc), Ashton Agar, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Travis Head, Chris Lynn, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, D'Arcy Short, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa
Paine averaged just 7.2 in Australia's 5-0 ODI series loss to England this June, but his presence as a leader alongside new coach Justin Langer was deemed crucial as the side began its rebuild after the events of Newlands.
Following the trend of the Test and T20 teams, two vice-captains were named: fast bowler Josh Hazlewood and the squad's sole gloveman, Alex Carey.
Pat Cummins joins Hazlewood in making a return to the national side having been sidelined with a back injury since Australia's Test tour of South Africa in April, while Warriors speedster Nathan Coulter-Nile is in line to play his first ODI in more than a year after strong early-season form following another extended injury layoff.
Mitchell Starc returns to the ODI squad having missed the tour of England, while Test vice-captain Mitch Marsh and prolific Test off-spinner Nathan Lyon have not been included in the squad, and nor has white-ball specialist Andrew Tye.
In releasing the squad, national selector Trevor Hohns addressed that trio's absence.
"Andrew Tye is unlucky to miss out. The return of Cummins, Hazlewood and Starc unfortunately meant there wasn't enough room in the squad for another quick," Hohns said.
"And we have made the decision to manage Mitch Marsh and Nathan Lyon carefully to ensure they are in the best condition possible to put their hand up for selection either later in the summer or for the World Cup next year.
"No doubt with a big summer program ahead opportunities may well present themselves for Andrew, Mitch and Nathan, as well as others not included in this squad."
West Australian Marcus Stoinis - who was recently axed from the T20 squad - has retained his place in the 50-over format.
Towering paceman Billy Stanlake, Queenslander Michael Neser, South Australia seamer Kane Richardson and WA speedster Jhye RIchardson are the other quicks omitted from the England tour.
Finch is the fourth captain of the Australian men's side this year, after Steve Smith (Test, ODI), David Warner (T20I) and Paine (Test, ODI), who is now the full-time Test skipper following the suspensions and leadership bans of Smith and Warner for their part in the Cape Town scandal.
Australia have lost 16 of their past 18 ODIs to slip to sixth in the ICC rankings, their lowest position since 1984 - three years before the first of their five World Cup wins.
