Aaron Finch used to be a swashbuckling opening batsman for Australia and for various T20 leagues across the world. He was best known for his potential to decimate the opposition’s confidence by scoring runs at a rate of knots.
The right-handed batter has given plenty of trouble to bowlers with his fearless brand of cricket. However, his form factor did deteriorate in the final stages of his career. Since he went past his prime, he decided to retire from the sport.
Currently, he is plying his trade as a commentator and he was also seen commentating in the three-match ODI series between Team India and Australia that concluded recently.
Paul Collingwood savagely trolls Aaron Finch
Aaron Finch has played as many as 92 games in the Indian Premier League wherein he scored 2091 runs at a strike rate of 128.2 including 15 half-centuries.
For the record, the former Australian skipper has played for nine teams in the IPL. Recently, the official TV broadcasters of the IPL, Star Sports, posted a video clip featuring former cricketers namely Paul Collingwood and Aaron Finch, as they spoke about the upcoming edition of the IPL.
Aaron Finch was asked to name all the IPL teams he featured in sequential order. Meanwhile, Paul Collingwood brutally trolled the former aggressive top-order batter which took us by surprise.
He added that the amazing thing is nobody retained Aaron Finch and then giggled. Collingwood’s remark even left Aaron Finch in splits as the latter burst into laughter and said, “I know, I know”.
Aaron Finch has represented Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals), Pune Warriors India (now-defunct franchise), Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mumbai Indians, Gujarat Lions, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders.
The veteran cricketer announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket in February earlier this year. He famously led the Australian cricket team to the 2021 T20 World Cup win and also won the ODI World Cup as a player in 2015.
