Australia captain Aaron Finch announces his retirement from ODIs
Australian white-ball captain Aaron Finch called time on his one-day international career on Saturday after a poor run of form. However, he will remain skipper of the Twenty20 side for the World Cup at home next month. The 35-year-old will play his 146th and final ODI on Sunday in Cairns against New Zealand, capping an outstanding career in the 50-over format in which he has scored 5,401 runs at an average of 39. His 17 centuries put him behind only great Ricky Ponting (29), David Warner and Mark Waugh (both 18), and one clear of Adam Gilchrist. He will remain captain of the T20 side he led to a maiden World Cup crown last year, and has seven more games to find form before their title defence starts against the Black Caps in Sydney on October 22.
