Aaron Finch is likely to take a big call on his career. The white-ball captain of Australia will speak to the media on Saturday about his future as his struggles with the bat reach a crisis point.
According to reports, he will quit one-day internationals, with the fifty-over World Cup set to be played in India next year.
Since scoring a well-compiled 62 against Sri Lanka in an ODI, he is averaging 3.7. However, Finch is not the only player who has failed to get going in this format of the game.
Marcus Stoinis and Marnus Labuschagne are also battling for form. If Finch confirms retirement, his last match will be in the ongoing three-match ODI series against New Zealand.
The hosts have already retained the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy with an unassailable 2-0 lead under Finch’s captaincy. Aaron was Australia’s skipper when they won the T20 World Cup in 2021.
He is expected to lead the team in the 2022 T20 World Cup as well.
