Sydney, Aug 25 (IBNS): Glenn Maxwell has found a place in the Australian T20 squad which will face Sri Lanka in a two-match series from Sept 6.

David Warner has been named the skipper of the side.

According to Cricket Australia website, Steve Smith will leave Sri Lanka early to focus on South Africa tour with David Warner to take over the one-day and T20 captaincy.

Cricket Australia's National Selector Rod Marsh said in a statement: "Steve has a large amount of cricket coming up in the next 12 months and we wanted to find a time for him to freshen up and these last five matches provide a good opportunity to do so."

"Regardless of the results of the first two matches our plan was always for Steve to take a break and refresh ahead of the ODI Series against South Africa next month,"Rod Marsh said.
