Profile

A solidly-built, aggressive batsman from the country town of Colac in south-west Victoria, Aaron Finch wrote himself a place in the history books when he made a Twenty20 world-record 156 against England in 2013, an innings which also included a record 14 sixes. The following year, Finch was named Australia's T20 captain to replace George Bailey, but on the eve of the 2016 World T20 in India the selectors decided to consolidate the captaincy of all three formats and handed the job to Steven Smith. Finch at the time was the No.1-ranked T20 international batsman in the world, but found himself suddenly struggling to hold on to his place in the side. For some time Finch had been an automatic selection in Australia's ODI and T20 teams, and had set the tone for their triumphant 2015 World Cup with 135 in their opening match against England at the MCG.
