Profile

A well-built aggressive right-handed batsman, Aaron Finch is an Australian cricketer who represents Victoria in domestic cricket. He represented Australia at the Under-19 World Cup in 2006. His first-class debut came against the touring Indians in December 2007.

Fondly known as “Finchy”, he was chosen for the squad of Victoria in the 2009-10 season where he scored his maiden first-class century. His impressive performance in the Sheffield Shield and the Pura Cup established him as Victoria’s strength. Later, in the Big Bash Twenty20 tournament, he scored 189 runs; only second to Kieron Pollard and that earned him a place in the Rajasthan team in the Indian T20 League. In 2011, he was spotted by the Delhi franchise and they signed him for the fourth and fifth season of Indian T20 League. The following year, he replaced Michael Clarke in the Pune squad for the sixth edition.

Mostly known as a big-hitter, Finch has a great variety of shots to offer which are useful in the starting overs of the innings. Finch has strike rates of 92 and 156 in ODI and T20I cricket respectively and this was one of the main reason why Hyderabad bought him for a sum of Rs. 4 crores for the seventh season of the Indian T20 League where he will play along with his Australian opening partner, David Warner.
