SYDNEY: Australia’s Aaron Finch says he has little chance of returning to the Test arena due to the emergence of a crop of talented youngsters and with three limited-overs World Cups over the next three years leaving him little time to stake a claim.
Finch, Australia’s limited-overs skipper, made his Test debut in 2018 against Pakistan in Dubai. He played the last of his five Tests in the Boxing Day contest against India that year before being dropped.
“In terms of red-ball cricket, I don’t think it’s realistic to play Test cricket again,” Finch was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia’s website.
“Just based on two things: the amount of opportunity to play four-day cricket and force a claim, I think, is going to be really limited; and also the young batters coming through, there are some seriously good players in Australia.
“The talent depth is really, really strong at the moment so I don’t think that’s an opportunity to be honest,” said the 33-year-old.
