Should finch's captaincy duties expand?

Finch could soon find himself as captain of Australia’s one-day international team in place of Paine.While Australia lost the tri-series final to Pakistan, Finch’s work as skipper during the tournament stood out to coach Langer.The Victorian starred with the bat, highlighted by his record-breaking 172 against the hosts, but also brought together an inexperienced team shell-shocked by a winless
tour of England.Langer admitted ODI skipper Paine’s future in the team was up in the air following Australia’s 5-0 defeat to England.When asked about Finch’s potential to take over from the Tasmanian, Langer said the 31-year-old had made a strong case.“We’ve talked about it from the day I was appointed that after this tour we’ll have a really close look at everything we’re doing at the moment from our leadership, which is such an incredibly high priority in Australian cricket,” Langer said in a post-match press conference.“Finchy’s certainly put his best foot forward this series.”
