Aaron Finch - unsung hero of the 2019 Aussie revival

Australia’s turnaround in 2019 post the darkest phase in their cricketing history has been meritorious, and there has been one man at the helm of it, whose contribution has gone under the radar. It’s not Tim Paine, nor is it Justin Langer, but it’s their very own limited-overs skipper, Aaron Finch.
