Taking refuge under the bio-bubble setup, cricketing arena busted into regular actions all around the globe gradually.

As the year experienced a stooping low number of International matches, cricketers wanted to stamp their authority on the 22-yards at all cost. Be it the longest format of the game or limited-overs cricket, players displayed the propensity of relentless vigour and zest as soon as they stepped onto the field.

Aaron Finch is one of the finest willow-wielders in modern-day cricket. The Australia-based cricketer rose up the ranks on the back of brilliant leadership skills coupled with pinch-hitting power. The opener apparently never fails to put the kangaroos on the position of strength. His enriching experience has helped him to calm his nerves under immense pressure.

The swashbuckler boasts a memorable year as reflective from his scorecard. His power-hitting ability gives the Aussies an impetus to post a huge target on board or achieve one while batting second. In the year 2020, Aaron smashed around 643 runs against the likes of India, South Africa and England. Moreover, he thrashed an unbeaten 110 against the Men-in-blue in the first ODI of the 3-match series playing in his home soil.

Eventually, Aussies toppled the Indian bowling line-up to seal the match comprehensively.  Hence, he cements the opening spot in the high-profile list. It will be exciting to see whether the 34-year-old continues to provide a robust foundation to the team batting line-up.
