Australian ODI captain Aaron Finch will turn 36 in November. In 2022, he has played in 12 one day internationals. In twelve innings', in those ODI's, he has passed 15 just three times, and only got beyond 5 five times. He has scored 169 runs at an average of 14.08.

Not sure how much longer they can persist with him, footwork looks shot.
The jungle drums have been beating for a few weeks now , win the T20 WC on home soil , then announce his retirement.

New captain (CA finally get their man in Carey) and a new opening partner for Warner (most likely Head) for the ODI series v England

Looks like we then have 5 v SA (A) & 3 v IND (A) only before the 2023 WC

Been watching a bit of England's summer Tests. Worth noting that Ollie Robinson has clearly taken the fitness advice on board; this season he's been bowling close to 140kph, which makes him a much more dangerous threat. Will be a very different task facing him next year. Who knows if Jofra will make an appearance by then too...

Seen a little bit of the European Cricket Championship on Fox.

Leg spin hard to get a way for the Fins.

Interestingly, the game is played on synthentic pitches. However, the base doesn't seem to be concrete.
