AARON FINCH (Australia)
The only batsman to score 150 plus innings in T20I history, Australia’s T20I skipper Aaron Finch recently became the first batsman to break his own record of the highest score in T20I cricket, when he smoked 172 against Zimbabwe, breaking his own record of 156, set against England.
Finch has been recognized for his ability to tear apart the bowlers in ODIs and T20Is and is often regarded as the best batsman in current era yet to play Test cricket. 1596 runs in 42 T20Is with two 150+ scores in T20Is at a strike rate of 161.53 is enough to make him a devastating opener in all rights.
Finch takes on the bowlers and makes them bowl to his strengths and then scores freely on both sides of the wicket. His score of 172 is not only the highest score in T20Is but the second highest in T20 format altogether, just 3 runs behind Chris Gayle’s 175* in IPL for RCB.
