Aaron Finch all time XI no rohit Sharma sachin tendulkar

The Australian white ball captain in Aaron Finch in his recent interview was asked to pick an India-Australia combined ODI XI in which the destructive opening batsman picked an unusual opening pair leaving out Sachin Tendulkar and Rohit Sharma who are two monstrous white ball openers the world has ever seen.

“I want to go with Rohit but….”

India and Australia are two of the cricketing giants and have produced unbelievable legends of the game. Australia have 5 world cups under their kitty which is 3 times more than the 2nd best which shows the brand of cricket they have been playing over the years. When Aaron Finch was asked to pick an combined XI, he missed out Rohit Sharma and Sachin Tendulkar which was shocking to say the least.

Sehwag is my number one pick. He was so dominant. As soon he was on, the game was over. I want to go with Rohit Sharma, his record is amazing, but I want to watch Adam Gilchrist open with Virender Sehwag, hence I would pick Gilchrist
I will go with Ricky Ponting at no. 3 and then Virat Kohli at 4. It’s such a tough position to bat at no. five. I would probably pick Hardik Pandya at no. 5 and Andrew Symonds at no. 6 position
Dhoni is a cool head under pressure, he takes the team over the line, be it in IPL or international cricket. If the team is 3 for 10, he comes out and get the runs. If the team is chasing, he finds a way the team to get there

Aaron Finch couldn’t decide the spinner for the team

The world cup winning member picked his three pacers without any trouble but couldn’t lock on to a spinner for his team as he was very confused between Harbhajan Singh, Bradd Hogg and Ravindra Jadeja.

Here’s what he had to say about his bowling attack

I would pick Glenn Mcgrath, Brett Lee, and Jasprit Bumrah as my pace trio. Brad Hogg has such a great record, should I go with Harbhajan Singh or maybe Ravindra Jadeja to bat at eight to get extra batting option… I am unable to decide, who would I pick, I am saying players who I loved to watch, but I am unable to decide. It’s too hard to decide

Virender Sehwag, Adam Gilchrist, Ricky Ponting, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Andrew Symonds, MS Dhoni, Brett Lee, a spinner(undecided), Glenn McGrath and Jasprit Bumrah
