Australian cricket team always has multiple-talented players. As we discussed earlier about Glenn Maxwell’s innings which was truly inspiring against Pakistan. This time, we are going to discuss about Aaron Finch’s dominating knock against England in T20, which even set a world record.
It was 1st T20 between Australia and England in The Rose Bowl stadium, England, in 2013. England won the toss first and elected to bowl first. Aaron Finch, along with David Warner, came as a opening batsmen. Warner didn’t stayed for too long but Aaron Finch was looking very sensational, indeed. He stayed on the crease and certainly became a nightmare for England bowlers.
T20 format always is seemingly inspiring for everyone because of the batsman’s utter thinking while staying on the pitch. A batsman would have to think about aggressive-playing-style in order to make some defendable score, especially when it’s against world-class bowlers.
Now whatever Aaron Finch did on the crease against England was truly inspiring and sensational. He smashed 11 Fours and 14 Sixes in his innings with the highest strike rate of 247. He scored 156 runs off just 63 deliveries, yes, that’s what he did. Certainly, every shot played by a batsman doesn’t gets much successful because if he is looking for a big hit, it couldn’t reach the boundary sometimes. But Aaron Finch still managed to take more out of it. He was merciless for English bowlers.
Aaron Finch was bowled by Dernbach which truly ended the amazing hitting display for the audience to enjoy. But it was spectacular! Australia set the target of 249 for England which definitely the highest score to chase in T20 format. Australia defended it well, as English batsmen tried to reach close to it and there wasn’t any big margin of losing for England. They lost it by 39 runs only, but the credit goes to Australian overall performance, especially Aaron Finch’s batting is truly praisable.
