Alex Carey to captain Australia In 1st ODI vs West Indies in Aaron Finch’s absence…

Alex Carey will captain Australia in the first one-day international against the West Indies; Cricket Australia said on Monday that Finch injured a knee while batting in the fifth Twenty20 in St. Lucia last Friday and that his fitness for the ODI series will be assessed on a day-to-day basis.

All three matches are being played in Barbados, starting on Wednesday. Carey, 29, will become Australia’s 26th ODI captain and takes the mantle in the absence of regular vice-captain Pat Cummins, who is sitting out the West Indies tour along with a host of senior players including Steve Smith and David Warner.
