Aaron Finch: Australian T20I captain Aaron Finch, who is now under pressure, has stated that he has no immediate plans to retire and that a decision will only be made after the completion of the 2019 Big Bash League (BBL). After Australia’s disappointing championship defense in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022, Finch commented. Due to a lower net run rate in their Super 12 games, the Australians could not advance to the semifinals.

The crushing 89-run defeat to Trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand marked the turning point of their campaign. Forcing Aaron Finch’s team to play catch-up for the remainder of the tournament.

“Not Just Yet”, Aaron Finch on his T20 Career

“No, I’m not going to retire. Not just yet. I’ll play Big Bash and see where we sit after that, but I’m still enjoying playing cricket, playing T20. There’s not another international T20 until August, so there’s quite a long break. Still, plenty of time to be able to weigh all that up. It’s been a pretty good ride regardless of what happens.”

Finch told Seven on Sunday after Australia was knocked out of the T20 World Cup

From early 2018, Aaron Finch served as Australia’s sole white-ball captain. Under his leadership, the Aussies advanced to the 2019 World Cup semifinals. And won the inaugural T20 World Cup in the UAE in 2017. In the meantime, he stopped competing in One Day Internationals this September.

Aaron Finch’s Form

On the other hand, Finch did not have a standout performance with the bat. He could only muster one half-century in the four Super 12 games the Australians played (he played three out of those). Due to weather, their eagerly anticipated match against their bitter rivals England had to be called off before a ball was bowled. The seasoned opener has collected 3120 runs from 103 matches at an average of 34.28. With a strike rate of 142.53, including two hundred.

He is now the sixth-highest run-scorer in T20Is. Four days after the World Cup final, Australia will play England in a three-match One-Day International series. McDonald suggested that their tournament’s early conclusion would indicate that a stronger-than-anticipated group would be picked.

Last month, Pat Cummins was named the new ODI captain. However, it is unlikely he will play in every series. McDonald, who succeeded Justin Langer as head coach earlier this year, made no excuses for Australia’s Super 12s relegation from their domestic competition. Speaking earlier that day, head coach Andrew McDonald did not foreshadow Finch’s choice, but he did observe that once discussions about retirement get going, things frequently go in that direction.
