Australia’s most successful T20I batter, Aaron Finch, announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket on Tuesday (February 7). Finch has represented his nation in 254 international matches across all formats and he also led the Men in Yellow to their maiden T20 World Cup triumph in 2021.

In the shortest format, Finch has the record of the longest-serving skipper to his name, as he captained the Australian side in 76 T20Is-the most by any player. The 36-year-old featured for the Aussies in 146 ODIs as well and won the 2015 Men’s ODI World Cup as a member of the team. However, before calling off his career from all forms of international cricket, Finch had already retired from the 50-overs format in 2022. He also appeared in five Tests for the Aussies.

After Finch’s retirement announcement, social media was flooded with praises for the white ball legend, as so many popular personalities and fans posted happy retirement messages for the World Cup-winning captain.

Famous Australian sports journalist Chloe-Amanda Bailey wrote on Twitter: “It sucks when your faves you’ve watched play for most of your life start retiring from international cricket! Thanks for everything @AaronFinch5. Legend. All the best for what’s next!”

Sunrisers Hyderabad also took to Twitter to wish Finch a happy retirement. Notably, Finch had previously represented the Hyderabad-based franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

On that note, let’s look at some of the reactions following Finch’s retirement.
