- Aaron Finch bludgeoned RCB with his fiery knock of 72 runs from just 34 balls.
- The hard-hitting Australian came to bat at no.4 for Gujarat Lions.
Aaron Finch proved yet again why he is one of the most dangerous batsmen in the shortest format of the game when he went berserk against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Thursday. Finch did not let RCB get back in the game at any cost and decorated his innings with relentless hitting.
Kohli and co. could have capitalised on a situation when Gujarat Lions lost a couple of wickets early. But Finch stood tall at one end of the wicket and kept on hitting the RCB bowlers out of the park. His innings was decorated with six humongous sixes and five boundaries and that left Kohli gutted.
With this loss, RCB now have very little chance to make it to the playoffs and Finch played a major role in it.
Here are some amazing facts about the Aussie star that you probably did not know:
## Before Finch played at international level, he already had experienced the Indian Premier League. However, he only played one match for Rajasthan Royals in 2010.
## Finch spent a season with the Delhi Daredevils in 2011 and in 2012 he was picked by the now-defunct Pune Warriors India. He was even appointed as their captain when Angelo Mathews had failed.
## Finch shot to fame with his incredible knock of 156 from 63 balls against England in 2013. That was when Finch was recognised as one of the most dangerous batsmen in the shortest format of the game.
## The Australian hard-hitting batsman played for the Marleybourne Cricket Club (MCC) in 2014. He opened the batting with none other than Sachin Tendulkar and also batted along with Rahul Dravid, Brian Lara and Shivnarine Chanderpaul. He scored 181 and remained unbeaten in that match as well.
## Despite being recognised as one of the best top-order batsmen Australia ever produced, he has not yet played a single Test for his country.
