Mitchell Marsh has been given only a brief taste of the T20 captaincy but the rejuvenated all-rounder is worth an extended run as a white-ball leader. 

And if he goes well in the shortest format, he should get the one-day gig from Pat Cummins after the World Cup. 

Chairman of selectors George Bailey said they would assess the leadership positions of the white-ball teams after the ODI showpiece event is run and done in India in November. 

He indicated their preference was for there to be only two skippers across the formats but did not rule out a scenario where there could be one full-time captain for each of the three squads.
