IPL 2021: Australian veteran surprised by not buying Aaron Finch, asked- Are our selectors wrong?

IPL 2021: Australian veteran surprised by not buying Aaron Finch, asked- Are our selectors wrong?

This time in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021), some of the biggest names of world cricket will not be seen and one of them is the captain of Australia ODI and T20 team Aaron Finch. Finch, who was a part of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) last season, could not be part of any team this time. RCB released him before the auction. After this, no team bid on him in the recent IPL auction. Former Australia captain Michael Clarke is shocked at Finch not getting a place in the IPL. Clarke has questioned whether the Australian selectors are wrong which has made Finch the captain of the team.

Finch, the third-ranked batsman in the ICC rankings in T20, has a very impressive record in this format. In view of this, he was bought by the RCB captained by Virat Kohli in the auction held in 2019. However, Finch was unable to perform to his reputation in the IPL 2020 season last year at the UAE. After this, he did not get runs off his bat even while captaining the Renegades in Melbourne in the Australian tournament Big Bash League. So he could not get attention in IPL auction.

IPL franchise wrong or our selectors?

Clarke is extremely shocked by this indifference of IPL teams about Finch. Clarke, a former captain who won Australia's World Cup in 2015, said he did not believe any team bought Finch. Speaking to Sky Sports, Clarke said,

“Are the Australian selectors wrong, Aaron Finch our T20 captain or are all the IPL franchises wrong? I can't believe it Australia's T20 captain was not bought. Someone is wrong. "

Clarke also said that Finch is one of the best batsmen in the world and despite having so many teams, Finch is not surprised to find any buyers. Clarke said, "There is no game in the world in which you are the captain of Australia and still do not be a part of the tournament with so many teams." I think he is still definitely one of the top and best batsmen in the world. "

Finch is not surprised

Australian captain Finch is currently on a tour of New Zealand with his team, where the 5-match T20 series is starting on Monday 22 February. Before the start of the series, Finch had said that it was not surprising for him to get a place in the IPL. However, Finch admitted that he wanted to play in the IPL again, but it is also beneficial to stay with the family in the current situation.


Board disrespected the veteran who played 218 ODIs, kicked the contract

Board disrespected the veteran who played 218 ODIs, kicked the contract

In the cricket world, some boards are always in the headlines due to their behavior towards the players. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is also one of those boards. In the recent case, he treated one of his legendary players in such a way that the player turned down the contract given by the board. Although this player has been without contract since 2019, but as soon as this year the board included this player in the contract, he felt insulted.

Mohammad Hafeez has not been given a contract by the board since 2019. For every match he played in 2020, the board gave him the match fee for A-category players. The board had taken this decision in view of Hafiz's seniority. But suddenly the board put him in the category where his seniors got hurt and Hafiz became angry.

There is unhappiness over getting contract for C category

According to the website ESPNcricinfo's report, PCB had awarded Hafeez a C category contract. Hafeez does not like this and he rejects this contract. He has cited the low grade contract as the reason for Hafeez's rejection of this contract. Hafeez has been performing consistently for Pakistan in T20. He has scored 331 runs in this format in the last 12 months and is behind England's David Malan in scoring the most runs in T20 in a year. Malan has scored 386 runs during this period.

Rizwan gets a category

Hafeez may have been disappointed with the contract, but there are some players who must have been very happy to see the contract list. Mohammed Rizwan, who is running in superb form at the moment, has been brought into the top category. He has come from B category to A. Fawad Alam has been kept in C category. Alam has got the prize for good performance in recent times.

PCB chief executive Wasim Khan said, "Mohammad Hafeez has refused to accept the contract. I am disappointed in this but I respect his decision. He wants to wait for the 2021-22 contract list of the PCB. To which they are fully entitled. Hafeez has been our great performer this season. We hope that he will keep this rhythm in Africa.
