After being determined to have played the primary role in the 2018 incident, Cricket Australia suspended the 35-year-old from the elite game for a year and leadership posts permanently. Aaron Finch resigned as Australia’s one-day international captain due to a slump in form. It is also not certain to return as the team’s Twenty20 captain during the 2019 World Cup.

Warner emphasized that it was far from guaranteed that Finch would also abandon the international game’s shortest format.
