    Deep philosophical question: Is Aaron Finch actually good?

    On one hand, against weak opposition on flat pitches he can be as destructive as anybody in the history of the game.

    On the other hand, he has never done anything particularly note-worthy in the longer form when it has mattered.


    I don't know what to feel

    He's a decent short form specialist
    Proudly supporting the world's no 1 spin bowler Rangana Herath and the mighty Sri Lankans!

    I even made a domestic thread

    There's a couple of technical issues he needs to rectify, then he'll start making big FC runs then test runs. Test regular by 2016 and averaging 40 plus.

    If he's bowling last night was anything to go by this sounds like a decent prediction

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Doesn't Finch average about 10 in Shield cricket? The bloke clearly had an eye like a dead Jewy, but he's just a walking wicket against he new rock in FC games I've seen. He's so bottom-hand dominant and doesn't really move his feet at all. It would need a pretty major reconstruction of his game for him to succeed in long form cricket, and tbf to him, I don't know how keen you'd be to do that when you can take in big bikkies playing short form cricket anyway.

    Also, if Burgeinho stayed leg side of the ball to spinners as often as Arun does, I would box his ears. My eyes bleed watching him do it.
