Australia’s captain and opening batter, Aaron Finch, has announced his retirement from ODIs after 145 matches. He says that he is backing Steve Smith as the new leader of the team. Finch has been out-of-form in recent matches, but he is confident that Smith can lead the team to victory in the T20 World Cup in October. Australia captain Aaron Finch will retire from one-day internationals, with Sunday’s match against New Zealand being his last in the format. Finch, who has represented Australia at the 145 ODIs, has been in terrible form in 50-over cricket this year, scoring just 26 runs in his last seven innings. In a press release from Cricket Australia, Finch said: “It’s been an amazing ride with some great memories.” I have had the pleasure of being a part of some brilliant one-day sides. I have had the privilege of working with many talented people, and I am grateful to everyone who has contributed to my career.

It is time to give a new leader the best chance to prepare for and win the next World Cup. I thank all of those who have helped and supported me on my journey so far. Although he will not be a part of Australia’s ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2024 squad, Finch will continue to captain the side in this year’s T20 World Cup. Although his ODI career is over, Finch will retire with an impressive record that includes more than 5,400 runs to his name over the 17th century.
Aaron Finch .He made his debut against Sri Lanka at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2013 and smashed his first hundred against Scotland, scoring 148 runs. He was appointed as the permanent white-ball captain after the fallout of the ball-tampering scandal in 2018. This led to Steve Smith being banned.
Congratulations, Aaron, on your many accomplishments as captain of the Australian Men’s ODI team and as a great ambassador for the 50-over format. Aaron is a talented and determined player, with outstanding deeds with the bat matched by his strong leadership skills. His decision to step down from the ODI captaincy is typical of his selfless approach to the game. I’m glad Aaron will lead the Australian team into the forthcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. His leadership, experience and tactical nous will be important to the team’s success in the tournament. Aaron Finch retirement
