Aaron Finch retirement: Aaron Finch announced sudden retirement from ODI cricket: Continue as T20 captain
Australian cricket team’s limited overs captain Aaron Finch has announced his sudden retirement from ODI cricket. The third and final ODI against New Zealand on Sunday (September 11) will be Finch’s last ODI. However, he will continue to captain Australia’s T20 team. With Aaron Finch suddenly announcing his retirement, several names are emerging for Australia’s next captaincy in the ODI format. However, why Finch announced his retirement from the ODI format so soon is a question that is not understood. A year before the 2023 ICC 50-over World Cup, Finch stepped down as captain of the team for Tests and T20s.
It’s time to pick a new ODI captain! Announcing his decision to retire at a press conference, Aaron Finch said, “It’s been an amazing ride with some incredible memories. I’ve been very fortunate to be part of some amazing ODI teams. He has been equally blessed by everyone who has played with him and many people behind the scenes,” he added. “Now is the time to give the new captain a better chance to prepare for the next World Cup and win. “I thank everyone who has helped and supported my journey to this point,” Finch said, making it clear that Australia will not be part of the men’s squad for the upcoming ICC ODI World Cup 2023.
