new Delhi. Aaron Finch held a strong record as soon as he landed on the pitch against Sunrisers Hyderabad for Royal Challangers Banglore in the 13th of the Indian Premier League (IPL). This captain of Australian T20 cricket team has become the first batsman to play for 8 teams in IPL along with playing in this match.
This is the 10th season of Aaron Finch in IPL
This is the 10th season of Aaron Finch in the IPL and in this he has played only twice for two consecutive seasons for a team. For the first time Finch started his career for Rajasthan Royals in IPL-2010. After this, in two seasons, he made a stake for Delhi Daredevils. In IPL 2013, Finch showed his fire for Pune Warriors India. In IPL-2014, he joined Sunrisers Hyderabad, while in IPL-2015, Mumbai Indians added him to his team.
After getting the opportunity to play just 3 matches from Mumbai, Finch reached Gujarat Lions in the very next season and stayed there for two seasons. In the IPL-2018, due to the end of the IPL journey of Gujarat Lions, they had to find a new team again. This time, he got a ticket for Kings XI Punjab. Finch withdrew his name due to personal troubles in IPL-2019. Due to this, he had to take a place in the new team again for IPL -2020 and this time he has shown confidence in his team by Virat Kohli.
Record in IPL has not been very good
Finch’s IPL journey has not been very effective. Finch, who has played 76 IPL matches so far, has recorded only 1766 runs, in which he has an average of 26.35. However, he has scored these runs with an effective strike rate of 130 and this is probably the reason that teams have never lost their confidence in him. In his name, scores of 50 runs have been recorded in the IPL 13 times, so he has also hit 177 fours and 69 sixes.
Finch has the biggest score of T20 International
Finch may not have performed very well in the IPL, but in T20 International cricket, he holds the record for the highest score in his name. He hit a 76-ball 172 against Zimbabwe at Harare ground on 3 July 2018, in which he hit 16 fours and 10 sixes. In this innings, he was hit out wicket. Apart from this, he has also played 156 runs in 2013 against England once. He is the only cricketer to score 150+ runs in T20 International cricket in his name. Finch has scored 2114 runs in 64 T20 Internationals with 2 centuries and 12 fifty at an average of 38.43 and a strike rate of 154.
