Australia’s shorter-format leader, Aaron Finch, is to probably retire from the international cricket after featuring himself in the World Cup 2023 to be played in India.
The mega-event is scheduled for October-November as earlier, it was placed somewhere in between February-March. Many believe that the global cricketing body has attempted to reschedule the event to October in order to give place to Pakistan’s T20 league, the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

“My end date at this stage is the World Cup final of the 2023 World Cup in India,” he told SEN.
“That’s my goal and I’m sticking to it. That’ll see me through to 36 (years old), obviously with form and everything permitting, and injuries,” he added.
“If I thought I was going to be pushing it to get to that date, this break has confirmed that I’ll be ready to go right through to that period.”
It is to be noted that Australia have revealed their playing squad against England and the Kangaroos will be signing in a three-match T20I and ODI series at Manchester and Southampton. The side will be led by Aaron. He also led his team back in the World Cup 2019 and dragged his team to the semifinals.
