Cairns: Aaron Finch will retire from one-day international cricket, with tomorrow’s ODI against New Zealand set to be his last in the format.
Finch who has played 145 ODIs for Australia has struggled for form in recent games, scoring only 26 runs in his last seven innings.
In a press release from Cricket Australia, Finch said, “It has been a fantastic ride with some incredible memories.
“I have been extremely fortunate to be a part of some brilliant one-day sides. Equally, I have been blessed by all those I have played with and the many people behind the scenes.
“It is time now to give a new leader the best possible opportunity to prepare for and win the next World Cup. I thank all of those who have helped and supported my journey to this point.”
Although he will not be a part of Australia’s ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2024 campaign, Finch will continue to lead the side in this year’s T20 World Cup.
