Bio

A well-built aggressive right-handed batsman, Aaron Finch is an Australian cricketer who first represented Australia at the Under-19 World Cup in 2006. His first-class debut came against the touring Indians in December 2007.


Fondly known as “Finchy”, he was chosen for Victoria in the 2009-10 season where he scored his maiden first-class century. His impressive performance in the Sheffield Shield and the Pura Cup established him as Victoria’s strength. Later, in the Big Bash Twenty20 tournament, he scored 189 runs; only second to Kieron Pollard and that earned him a place in the Rajasthan team in the Indian T20 League. In 2011, the Delhi franchise spotted his talent and signed him for the fourth and fifth seasons of Indian T20 League. The following year, he replaced Michael Clarke in the Pune squad.


Mostly known as a big-hitter, Finch has a great variety of shots to offer which are useful in the starting overs of the innings. His impressive strike rate has always been a thing to look out for. In 2015, he became the first player to score 1000 runs in the Big Bash League. He also captained his country in the shortest format of the game when he was also rated as the number 1 batsman in international T20 cricket.


Injuries hampered Finch's career quite a bit during 2015-16 and also he was removed from captaincy weeks before the ICC World T20 in 2016. Although Finch remained a part of the team, he failed to leave much impact. His fortunes turned in 2018 when he was appointed as the captain again for the limited-overs after the ban of Steven Smith and David Warner. Their absence allowed him to make his Test debut as well but it wasn't very fruitful.


Aaron Finch did experience a dip in form in 2018 but his leadership quality kept him in good stead. After delivering the goods on the tours of India and Pakistan, Aaron was praised for his captaincy and he went on to lead Australia in the 2019 World Cup. During the 2019 Indian T20 League auctions, the Aussie was bagged by the Bangalore franchise for INR 4.4 crore.
