Finch also played his last T20 match in the same tournament when he scored 63 in Australia’s 42-run win over Ireland. Finch said, ‘I will not be able to play till the 2024 T20 World Cup, so now is the right time for me to step back so that the team can think about the future.’ Finch scored 278 runs in five Tests, 5406 runs in 146 ODIs and 3120 runs in 103 T20Is, including two centuries and 19 fifties, for Australia.

Finch was also in the Australian team that won the 2015 ICC ODI World Cup.
He said, ‘You play only for the success of the team. Winning the T20 World Cup and getting the ODI World Cup on home soil are the golden memories of my career. It is a matter of pride to play for Australia for 12 years and to play against the greatest players. He said that he will continue to play franchise cricket. He said, ‘Hopefully I will be able to play The Hundred in Britain.’ He will also do commentary during the IPL and the ODI World Cup in India.
