World Cup-winning captain Aaron Finch retires from T20Is

Aaron Finch has announced his retirement from T20Is, ending his Australia career spanning a dozen years. The Australia captain had retired from ODI cricket in September last year.

Finch walks away from T20I cricket with 103 caps for Australia, leading his country in 76 of those matches. He bows out as Australia’s leading run-getter in the format, having scored 3120 runs at an average of 34.28 and a strike rate of 142.5. His career-best 172, against Zimbabwe in 2018, is the highest individual score in the format, a record he previously established with his 156 against England in 2013.

During Finch’s tenure as skipper, Australia clinched their maiden T20 World Cup title, in 2021, by pipping New Zealand to the post.
