Australia’s Test captain Pat Cummins will also take over as skipper of the ODI team, the country’s cricket board has announced.
The role of the over-50s had become vacant after Aaron Finch left the format last month.
Fast bowler Cummins, who has 73 ODI caps, has been the Test captain since last year and oversaw the Ashes win over England last winter.
Cricket Australia’s Ben Oliver said: “We are extremely fortunate to have a number of high profile executives and experienced players across all formats.
“The Board and Selectors agree that Pat is the ideal choice to lead the ODI team through the next period, including the 2023 World Championship.”
Cummins said: “I really enjoyed playing under Finchy and learned a tremendous amount from his leadership.
“They are important shoes to fill, although we are extremely fortunate to have a one-day squad with tremendous amounts of experience.”
