Xtra Time Web Desk: The Australian white ball Captain will retire from One Day International on Sunday after playing his last match against New Zealand in this format. He is the Fourth player to score 17 most centuries for Australia in ODI after Ricky Ponting, David Warner and Mark Waugh. He has played 145 ODIs with 5401 runs. In his last 7 innings, he scored only 26 runs and he has seemed to struggle in his format.

Aaron Finch in the Press Conference said, “It has been a fantastic ride with some incredible memories. I have been extremely fortunate to be a part of some brilliant one-day sides. Equally, I have been blessed by all those I have played with and the many people behind the scenes. It is time now to give a new leader the best possible opportunity to prepare for and win the next World Cup. I thank all of those who have helped and supported my journey to this point.”

In the 2019 ODI World Cup, Aaron Finch scored 153 against Sri Lanka which is his individual highest score in this format. He has captained his country 54 times. Aaron Finch will continue to lead Australia in this year’s T20 World Cup.
