After a lot of bid war between the franchises to win Aaron Finch in the Indian Premier League 2020 auction, RCB finally added Australian Opener to the squad. The idea of the inclusion of Aaron Finch to the side was to reduce the pressure off Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. However, this does not turn out true for RCB and fans.
Aaron Finch in Indian Premier League 2020 made 12 appearances for RCB in which he managed to score just 268 runs with an ordinary average of 22.33. The Australian opener and limited over skipper had a forgettable season with just one fifty scores in 12 games. He was later dropped from the playing eleven giving way to Joshua Phillippe but that also did not turn out gold for Virat and Co.
The cricketer turned commentator, Aakash Chopra in his recent videos says, Aaron Finch is the biggest disappointment for RCB. Virat and Co. bought him to add more firepower to the top order and release extra pressure off Virat and AB.
Aakash Chopra: Aaron Finch is biggest Disappointment:
“Imagine, Aaron Finch, scoring big for RCB from one end while Devdutt showing his class at the other. You need a Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul, or even Mayank Agarwal like performance from him”, Aakash Chopra in his video.
“Aaron Finch was the biggest disappointment for RCB this season. They put huge 4.4 Crores on him, that’s a huge stake. You expect the Finch hitting from him,” former Cricketer.
“He got a whole lot of chances to bat. He was given enough chances to prove his worth, no one can say he was not given chances. You can probably say that for Moeen Ali, that he was in and out of the team but Aaron Finch played all the matches, I mean he played 10-12 matches at the start,” Aakash Chopra.
“But the form was not seen at all. Neither the form was seen nor the runs. He was even dropped at the end and then brought back again because Joshua Philippe did not do a great job either,” the former India opener further said.
“But that did not happen with this team. And the main reason for that was the big-stake player who was played, that is Aaron Finch and from RCB’s perspective he was a bit of a disappointment,” Chopra concluded.
