Aaron Finch, the captain of the Australian one-day international team, was forced to call it quits in one-day international cricket because of his poor form and physical difficulties. Finch, on the other hand, would be eager to bounce back into form and find some momentum as Australia prepares to defend their Twenty20 World Cup crown. The Twenty20 World Cup is coming up quickly. Because his opening partner David Warner will not be participating in their forthcoming Twenty20 International tour in India, the 35-year-old will need to shoulder more responsibility to assist the side in getting off to a strong start.
Glenn Maxwell, one of the captain’s teammates, is certain that the captain will show some signs of his previous form since the skipper enjoys playing in the subcontinent. Now, even though Finch has been having some difficulties as of late, his leadership skills are still as sharp as ever. Even though Australia were not the favorites, he was able to assist the squad in winning the Twenty20 World Cup the year before. Even in the most recent series, which was played against New Zealand, spectators were able to see once again how talented of a strategist he is.
According to Maxwell, “He’ll surely like playing these games in India, he enjoys batting there. Once he goes out on the field and takes leadership of the team out there, he’s been able to concentrate on the task at hand effectively, and that’s a credit to him.”
“Even if it wasn’t the easiest moment for him in one-day cricket, his mentality has remained the same throughout the whole thing. He was an absolute genius when it came to the strategic side of things. It’s a really underappreciated aspect of the Twenty20 game. It would be a mistake to undervalue his contributions as captain,” added Maxwell.
Following Finch’s announcement that he will be retiring from all One-Day International cricket, talks over who would replace him as captain of the Australian squad started. At the moment, David Warner, Steve Smith, Pat Cummins, and Alex Carey are considered to be the front-runners for the captaincy of the team. However, the Australian board has not yet given Warner permission to be the skipper of any of Australia’s teams after the ball-tampering controversy that occurred in 2018.
