As the right-handed hitter Aaron Finch stepped out to bat in his final one-day international for the very last time, the New Zealand team lead by Kane Williamson made the executive decision to present Finch with a “guard of honour.”
On Sunday, before the first ball of the third and final one-day international between Australia and New Zealand was bowled, the New Zealand team led by Kane Williamson decided to give Australia captain Aaron Finch a “guard of honour” as the right-handed batter walked out to bat in his final ODI for the last time. This occurred as the right-handed batter walked out to bat in his final ODI for the last time.
Finch made the announcement that he will be leaving the 50-over format following the match that was scheduled to take place against New Zealand on Saturday.
As soon as Finch saw the gesture made by New Zealand, he stepped over to Williamson and extended his hand to shake. The official Twitter handle of cricket.com.au was the one that uploaded the footage of the incident and publicised it.
On Twitter, cricket.com.au said the following about the Black Caps: “Classy stuff from the Black Caps as Aaron Finch makes his way to the middle.”
On Sunday, in the third and final one-day international between New Zealand and Australia, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson won the toss and elected to bowl first. This match will be the last for Australian captain Aaron Finch, who is retiring after this season.
The Chappell-Hadlee series has already been won by the home team after they won the first game on Tuesday by two wickets and then defeated the Black Caps by 113 runs two days later. This allowed them to declare victory in the series.
Matt Henry, Martin Guptill, and Michael Bracewell were replaced by Finn Allen, Glenn Phillips, and Lockie Ferguson as a result of New Zealand’s decision to make three substitutions.
Finch will play in his 146th and final One-Day International after announcing his retirement from the 50-over format on Saturday. His poor batting performance over the past few games led him to make the decision. Following the conclusion of the series, Australia decided to give opener David Warner some time off and replace him with Josh Inglis.
Marcus Stoinis, an all-rounder, is out with a side strain, and Cameron Green is coming back into the lineup to take his place.
