MELBOURNE: Australian batsman George Bailey on Sunday said he was ready to resume his place in the middle-order following the retirement of Michael Clarke.
But he added he’s not expecting captaincy on a permanent basis.
The Tasmanian has led Australia’s One-Day International (ODI) side more than anybody else over the past two years.
The 32-year-old also led his country in their World Cup opening fixture against England on February 14, scoring an important 55 with the bat as Australia won by 111 runs.
“If I wasn’t in the team for this last six weeks, then I can’t imagine I would be skipper. I would love to remain a part of the team,” Bailey was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia (CA).
“I certainly feel like I’ve got a number of good years of cricket left in me and hopefully a number of them are in Australian colours.”
Overall, 29 of Bailey’s 57 ODIs have come as captain with a winning percentage of 55.
