Australian skipper Aaron Finch has said that he won’t retire from international cricket following his team’s group-stage exit in the T20 World Cup. Instead, the 35-year-old will turn up in the upcoming Big Bash League (BBL) and accordingly assess his form and performances.

“No, I’m not going to retire. Not just yet. I’ll play Big Bash and see where we sit after that, but I’m still enjoying playing cricket, playing T20,” Finch was quoted in a report by ESPNcricinfo.

Finch retired from One Day Internationals (ODIs) in September this year. He has no international cricket to look forward to until August 2023 when Australia play T20Is in South Africa.

The next edition of the T20 World Cup is scheduled to be held in mid-2024 in West Indies and the United States of America (USA).

“There’s not another international T20 until August, so there’s quite a long break. Still plenty of time to be able to weigh all that up. It’s been a pretty good ride regardless of what happens,” Finch opened up on his plans for the near future.

Big Bash to help decide international future of Aaron Finch

Finch scored 107 runs in three matches of the T20 World Cup at a strike rate of 110.30. He has battled an indifferent run of form this year in the shortest format of the game. In 2022, Finch has played 20 T20Is and scored 512 runs at an average and strike rate of 28.44 and 119.91 respectively. With youngsters like Cameron Green knocking on the door, the pressure has been mounted on Finch to uplift his performances.

Furthermore, the captain is also dealing with his fair share of injury concerns. A hamstring injury meant that he didn’t turn up in Australia’s final game of the tournament against Afghanistan.

“I think the Big Bash will probably determine his future – how he goes there, his performances, how his body is holding up,” Australian head coach Andrew McDonald was quoted in a report by the aforementioned website.

He added, “His body has failed him here in terms of a hamstring strain that put him out of the World Cup…the next game is not until August next year so that gives him a lot of time to repair if he is willing to go on.”

Finch will be representing the Melbourne Renegades in the 12th season of the BBL starting from 15th December onwards.
