Finch to lead Australia against Pakistan in T20s.

Top order batsman on Friday Aaron Finch has been confirmed as Australia’s captain for the three-match Twenty20 series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates later this month.

Finch, who captained Australia in the recent T20s in Zimbabwe, was among five debutants selected for the two-Test series before the short series.

“Aaron has already captained Australia in the recent T20s we played in Zimbabwe, and I’ve been extremely impressed with his impact on the test squad over here in the UAE,” Langer said in a statement on Friday.

“We know he’s an exceptional player, and he’s arguably the most in-form T20 player in the world at the moment.”

All-rounder Mitch Marsh and wicketkeeper Alex Carey will serve as Finch’s vice-captains.

“We know he’s an exceptional player, and he’s arguably the most in-form T20 player in the world at the moment.”

Aggressive top-order batsman Chris Lynn has also returned to the side after recovering from a shoulder injury.

The three T20 matches will be played in Dubai on October 24, 26 and 28.
