Former Indian opener and three-time IPL champion Murali Vijay makes a foray into sports broadcasting.
A hard-hitting opening batsman and keen tactician, the amiable 36-year-old bows out as one of his country's greatest limited-overs players and as the captain who delivered Australia a first global T20 title in the United Arab Emirates in 2021.
Finch underwent a fitness test on Wednesday, doing a series of run-throughs and stretches of his hamstring, watched by team fitness staff and selection chair George Bailey.
The defending champions defeated Ireland by 42 runs after posting 179/5.
The 29-year-old becomes Australia's 27th ODI skipper and the first fast bowler to hold the position after impressing in his first year as Test captain.
Australian captain is considering deploying Tim David to fire up the tail-end.
Despite posting a mammoth total, an underwhelming bowling display and sloppy fielding that included three dropped catches ensured India's defeat.
'He has shown for 15 years now that he is one of the greatest players of all time,' Finch said on the eve of the series-opener against India.
Head coach McDonald said the support staff were more focused on Australia's T20 World Cup defence on home soil than deciding on Finch's successor.
Finch, who has captained Australia 54 times in his 145 one-day matches, will continue to lead the country's Twenty20 side including at this year's World Cup.
