George Bailey, who lost his spot to Michael Clarke during 2015 World Cup campaign, is all set to resume his Australian career after the retirement of Clarke in ODIs and is said to be happy to fill in Clarke’s shoes in the middle order of Australian team.

Bailey has captained the national team in ODI cricket more than anyone else in the last two years and was also leading the side against England in the World Cup opener feels, having not played for the last six weeks that he does not expect to get the captaincy straight away and he is happy to get his place back in the team.

The 32 year old who played 57 ODIs has captained 29 of them with a win % of 55 and feels that he has got lot of years of good cricket in him and that he hopes to serve the nation in the years to come.

Michael Hussey when asked about captaincy issue said that the CA will discuss this matter very thoroughly and that it might come down to a choice between a ready-made captain in Bailey or Steve Smith making him one for the future.

He also said that if they want to look at the long-long term future, that Smith would be a perfect person and that Bailey is the automatic first choice to replace Clarke in the middle order.
