Sydney - India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni says Australia's selectors have made the right decision in naming his Chennai Super Kings team-mate George Bailey to lead the national Twenty20 side.

Dhoni described the little-known Bailey as an "interesting character," adding he's "someone who can play his strokes, he's very intelligent and understands the game well."

Bailey will make his international debut in any form of cricket when he leads Australia in the first of two T20 matches against India at Sydney on Wednesday.
