Australia skipper Aaron Finch set to make major announcement regarding his international career tomorrow
The limited-overs skipper of the Australian cricket team, Aaron Finch is all set to make a call ahead of his international career on coming Saturday at Cairns.
Currently, Aaron Finch-led Australian side is competing with Kane Williamson's New Zealand in the Chappell–Hadlee Trophy. Australia has won both the One-day games they played against New Zealand and will be looking to whitewash them in the upcoming game.
After defeating the visitors, the Australian skipper said, "It has been hard. The first 40 overs of our batting was incredibly difficult before the tail showed us how it needed to be done.
Excellent innings from Steve Smith. We knew we had a target to defend, and we had to be disciplined with the ball. Starc struck early and Sean Abbott was superb," was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"The wicket started to slow up and became lower. As the pressure built, the asking rate got to five an over. Zampa got wickets, but it was set up by the seamers. We knew the pitch would deterioare and become slower.
Although we have been five down early, we got to a good total in both the games. We feel that we can be aggressive and attacking. It is how we want to play our cricket going forward," he added.
Finchy out of the World Cup: Michael Clarke
Despite getting back-to-back wins against the Kiwis, Aaron Finch isn't looking in good form as he didn't cross the 20-run mark in the last seven One-day games he played. In addition to that, the 35-year-old got three ducks in the last seven outings he played.
In that case, the former Australian skipper, Michael Clarke has reckoned that the Australian management might look over Aaron Finch if he fails to get runs in the upcoming fixture against New Zealand. "He needs runs, there is no doubt about it… you can’t drop Finchy out of the World Cup squad now.
I’m assuming they’re looking at the one-day cricket different from the Twenty-20, so even if he makes no runs in this last one-day, that might be the end of his one-day career, but I think they’ll certainly still start with him in the Twenty-20 World Cup," Michael Clarke was quoted as saying on the big sports breakfast by Fox Cricket.
