Harris, who is nursing a quadriceps strain and is racing against time to be fit for the third Test against India, said he has been left impressed by Smith's leadership.

Smith scored a hundred and led the team to a four-wicket triumph over India in Brisbane after becoming Australia's 45th Test captain.

"There's no doubt I can see him as captain in all forms. We will see what happens, there is obviously a big (2015) World Cup coming up," Harris told 'Fox Sports'.

"George Bailey's done it (ODI role) in the absence of Michael Clarke and I think he has done a pretty good job. But with Steve Smith heading that way it might be a good idea to give it to him," he opined.

Speaking about himself, Harris said he has a "90 per cent" chance of making the playing in the third Test starting on December 26.

"It's going well. It was just a slight strain there. There's no pain there – it's all looking up. I am pretty keen to get back out there and play – I am frustrated watching," Harris said.

Australia lead the four-match series 2-0.
