Lately, It was announced that Australia skipper Aaron Finch took retirement from ODI CAPTAIN AUSTRALIA cricket and it gave a big surprise to many Australian and global cricket fans. He further said that he will now only play in T20Is. Aaron Finch was nominated as skipper in April 2019 and later led the team successfully for the recent 3 years.
Under his captain ship, Australia also earned the T20I World Cup 2021 last year. His exile has put a huge task ahead of Australian choosers to pick a new ODI captain for the national team. Some limited potential players can be picked as Australia’s next ODI captain.
The Players Who Can Replace Aaron Finch As The Next ODI captain of Australia are:-
1. Pat Cummins
Pat Cummins is the first name on the list to replace Aaron finch. Cummins is the test captain presently, who took over the captaincy last year. He also led the Test side adequately, bagging a brilliant 4-0 victory in The Ashes 2021-22 earlier this.
Although the selectors might be cautious to give both the ODI and Test responsibility to Pat, he is however one of the top players to surpass Aaron Finch as the new ODI manager.
2. David Warner
David Warner is another player who can replace Aaron Finch as the new ODI skipper. Due to his involvement in the sand-paper gate scandal he had been banned from captaincy roles, many experts and former Aussie cricketers have expressed opinions to withdraw his captaincy ban.
Further, Warner got success with the bat for Australia in the white-ball format. Therefore, selectors might withdraw Warner’s ban and make him the new ODI manager
3. Glenn Maxwell
Glenn Maxwell is another player on the list to replace Aaron. Maxwell is a formal member of the team in T20Is and ODIs. Moreover, he owns long experience in the limited overs format and he has similarly played many match-winning knocks for the team.
Therefore, Maxwell is another reasonable choice to replace Aaron Finch as the new manager in ODIs. With over 127 ODIs and 87 T20Is under his belt, he is one of the most skilled players on the Australian team.
