Australian skipper Aaron Finch has been in sublime form against Pakistan in the ODI series currently underway. Consistently unleashing marathon knocks to tame the feisty Pakistani bowling lineup, Finch delivered yet another stupendous performance in the third ODI.
After smashing match-winning scores of 116 and 153 not out in the first two games, Finch followed it up with a patient 90 to guide his team to a daunting total. This time batting at a slower pace, Finch nevertheless remained determined in his resolve as he battled it out on the difficult pitch.
Falling short of his 3d consecutive century by a mere 10 runs, Finch missed out on a national record for becoming the first Aussie player to do so. Nevertheless, Finch’s timely return to form is a major boost for the team ahead of the World Cup.
