IPL 2021: Michael Clarke questions Aaron Finch snub in IPL 2021 auction.
IPL 2021: Former Australian World Cup-winning captain, Michael Clarke questions Aaron FInch’s snuff in the recent IPL 2021 Auction. Talking in Sky Sports’ Big Sports Breakfast, Clarke said either Australian selectors are wrong or every IPL franchise.
Finch who is a limited over skipper of Australia was released by Royal Challenger Bangalore ahead of the IPL 2021 Auctions. The opener went unsold in the auction as no franchises showed interest.
Finch will continue leading Australia in limited-overs in the five T20I games against New Zealand despite a poor form in the Big Bash League Season 10 (BBL).
Are the Australian selectors wrong?
Clarke said, either the Australian selectors are going wrong by keeping Aaron Finch as the limited over skipper or every IPL franchise as they let go the experienced player without a single bid.
“Are the Australian selectors wrong in Aaron Finch being our Twenty20 captain or is every IPL franchise wrong?” he was quoted as saying by Fox Cricket.
“In no sport on the planet can you captain Australia and miss out on a tournament with a truckload of teams. Don’t tell me Aaron Finch is not good enough to be a part of one of those IPL teams,” Clarke added.
“I cannot believe Finchy hasn’t been picked up. Even for Finchy, that’s got to hurt as the Australian T20 captain. I think he’s still, definitely at the top of the order, one of the best in the world,” he further said.
Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey, Shaun Marsh, Jason Behrendorff, Billy Stanlake, Matthew Wade, and James Faulkner were amongst the unsold players from Australia apart from Aaron Finch.
