Australian limited overs skipper Aaron Finch will play his final one-day international against New Zealand on Sunday. Finch, though, proceeded to play poorly in the last ODI as well, hitting just 5 runs before being dismissed. Aaron Finch announced his retirement from ODI cricket on Saturday owing to his dismal form.
But it was anticipated that Finch will have a standout ODI performance. In the most recent ODI, Finch also took over as the team’s opener. Finch was not helped by his bat, either. In the sixth over, a Saudi delivery bowled Finch. Finch got 5 runs in 13 balls before being out, and his innings was without a boundary.
Finch could only reach double digits once in the final eight innings of his ODI career. Finch was out on zero three times during this span and only managed to score one run once. In three innings, Finch’s score was unable to rise over 5. Finch retired from ODI cricket as a result of his terrible performance.
The ODI career of Finch has not been poor.
Finch’s ODI career, though, wasn’t horrible. In 146 ODIs, Finch led Australia with 5406 runs. Finch averaged 38.89 in one-day international cricket, and in addition to his 17 hundreds, he also struck 30 half-centuries. Finch was chosen to lead Australia’s limited overs team after the ball-tampering scandal.
For the time being, Aaron Finch will continue to play T20 cricket. Finch served as Australia’s captain when they won the T20 World Cup in 2017. After the T20 World Cup, Finch may officially retire from playing for the United States. Finch had already made it known that he planned to retire from T20 even before the World Cup roster was revealed.
