Former England skipper Paul Collingwood takes a brutal dig on former Australian captain Aaron Finch over his performance in the Indian Premier League over the years. Aaron Finch has played 9 franchises in 10 long years in IPL starting in 2010 with Rajasthan Royals.
The highly anticipated IPL 2023 is scheduled to begin on March 31. Defending Championship Gujarat Titans are all set to take on four-time champions Chennai Super Kings on the very first day at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Paul Collingwood and Aaron Finch who are part of the broadcasting unit of Star Sports for IPL 2023, engaged in hilarious banter about the Finch representation of various franchises in the league and the former England all-rounder savagely trolled Finch that he had done so well in the league so that none of the team retained him
“The amazing thing is, nobody retained him. That’s how well he has done,” Collingwood burst into laughter
“I know, I know.” Aaron Finch quickly responded with a smile
Aaron Finch has played 91 matches in IPL scoring 2091 runs with an average of 25.19, the Australian opener could find much success in India and Finch announced his retirement from all formats of crickets in February 2023, with his major achievement is leading the Australian team in 2021 world cup victory over New Zealand in Dubai.
Harry Brook Will Hit Shots You’ve Never Seen – Paul Collingwood
England Coach Paul Collingwood, who will be seen commentating during the IPL 2023, spoke highly about the rising star Harry Brook stating that Hyderabad was lucky to pick up at a small cost. In the 2023 IPL Auction, Sunrisers Hyderabad picked up the 24-year-old for whopping 13.25 crores.
“Sunrisers Hyderabad to pick Harry Brook up is that’s a small cost, believe me. Because this guy can do anything, No matter what color the ball is, he will go out there and he will excite the crowds. He will hit a shot that you’ve never seen before”. Collingwood said
There was a bidding war between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals initially before Sunrisers Hyderabad joined the 13.25 crores. Harry Brook is already touted to be the next big thing in the world of cricket and Brook will be a very important player for Sunrisers Hyderabad in that middle order which is less experienced in the league.
South African star batter Aiden Markram was appointed as the captain of the Sunrisers Hyderabad for the 16th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). SunRisers Hyderabad will begin their IPL 2023 campaign against former winners Rajasthan Royals in the home game on Sunday, April 2nd.
