Australian skipper Aaron Finch brutally axed by Royal Challengers Bangalore

Aaron Finch has been one of the best opening batsmen over the past few years. He has consistently performed at the top order and provided his team Australia a solid base to build a big score on both in the first and second innings of the match.

He was crucial in last year’s World Cup for Australia when under his leadership the team reached the semifinals of the tournament but lost to the World Cup winners England.

His performance was best out of all the batsmen in the Australian team. He has also been a handy batsman in the IPL and other T20 leagues across the globe. This year he is playing the IPL with the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

A poor IPL:

However this year Finch’s performance has been very poor throughout this IPL. Finch has just managed to score 236 runs at an average of 21 with strike rate of just 111. He has managed to score above 20 only three times this season and has been very inconsistent as an opening batsman. 

Introducing Phillipe in place of Finch:

RCB management took the decision to take him out if the playing 11 in the match against Mumbai Indians and he was replaced by a youngster Josh Phillipe who scored 33 from 24 balls in the match. Many in the cricketing world appreciated this decision by the RCB management and said that big tournaments call for big decision and RCB has taken a good one.

  1. Philippe has got bad luck, they are losing 4 games in row since he started playing for RCB. Aaron Finch is better, every player has a bad season once in life he would get back to his form. This is a good chance for RCB to win IPL to guarantee that they need experienced players, not unexperienced players. Bad decision according to me
