Did not get a team in IPL. But he is the captain of the country that has won the T20 World Cup, he has two and a half hundred innings in the International T20. Only two cricketers have two and a half hundred innings left in the recognized T20. Aaron Finch doesn’t have to be introduced. In the two-day IPL auction, many unknown names have suddenly become millionaires. But one of the best batsmen like Finch had to return empty handed from the auction.
Finch will be disappointed with this. Yes. However, he is not angry with the IPL teams. The Australian T20 captain has admitted that cricketers like him are no longer being called up for the IPL despite the demands of the age.
Australia will visit Pakistan next January. Australia are currently busy with a series against Sri Lanka, finding time to move to Pakistan after 24 years. Australia have won the first three matches of the five-match T20 series. Before the other two matches, the team’s pace stars Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood have been rested. However, the T20 captain is not resting. However, just before the fourth match of the series tomorrow, he has taken a little time out for the Australian sports radio channel SEN.
Speaking on SEN’s Dwayne World show about not getting a team in the IPL, he said, “It would have been nice to play, there is no doubt about it. But the way the Indian franchises have arranged the team, all the top order batsmen are so good, they all deserve it. International and domestic cricket, there is only one flaw in the eyes of different teams in the world, and that is five, six, seven real power hitter batsmen.
In the IPL, there have been tensions with all such big hitters. Batsmen like Steve Smith, Marnus Labushan, Ben McDermott of Australia or leg spinners like Adam Jumper did not get a team in IPL. However, a franchise has taken Team David, who played for Singapore, for exactly 65 million rupees.
This time, Finch could have taken his record to a unique height with the team. No team took him in 2021 IPL. He was a regular in IPL for the previous 10 years. And in these 10 years he has played in eight different teams! The 35-year-old Finch is therefore satisfied with his IPL career, ‘I was not surprised (not getting a team). It would have been nice if I could have stayed there, but I have had a great 10 years, that’s what I’m blessed with. ‘
