The two were shortlisted after a player poll and presentation to a panel comprising coach Justin Langer, Greg Chappell, Mark Taylor, CA Board chairman David Peever, high performance manager Pat Howard, chief of selectors Trevor Hohns and psychologist Dr. Michael Lloyd. <p></p> <p></p>"With no aspirations to be captain you can have a really good relationship there. Then Mitch and myself can do everything we can to make Painey's (Paine) job as easy as possible," Hazlewood was quoted as saying by <em>foxsports.com.au</em> on Thursday. "Having someone as vice-captain who's not necessarily aspiring to be captain that s the position I find myself in, I think. I can really contribute as a leader and as a vice-captain without pushing that next level." <p></p> <p></p>Hazlewood said the shared responsibilities will work out well for the team considering the amount of cricket Australia are going to play. "I think it will work well. It's obviously a bit different but it's modern times I guess. Through the amount of cricket we re going to play, and myself as a quick whether I m missing games or resting, it's good to have one in the team who can step up on that occasion," the 27-year-old said. <p></p> <p></p>So who Hazlewood or Marsh - replaces Paine in case of injury or if he's dropped? "I guess that's an interesting one. If that does happen then I guess we'll have to talk about it. But Mitch has obviously done a lot of captaincy in the past for Western Australia and even through the junior levels. I wouldn't mind filling in for a session or two here or there. I think it's tough on a cricketer to be a full-time captain," he replied.
