India came back in international cricket after nine months with the first ODI against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground. They, however, didn’t get off to a great as Australian openers Aaron Finch and David Warner aggregated more than 100 runs for the first wicket. The former was brilliant in particular as he paced his innings to perfection and scored a well-compiled half-century. During the process, Finch also completed 5000 ODI runs. His impressive knock ignited a meme fest on Twitter as the dasher wasn’t in best of forms during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 where he played for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

In 12 matches, Finch scored 268 runs for the Virat Kohli-led team with just one score over fifty. He even was dropped from the playing XI in some games. However, the Australian skipper regained his lost touch back in national colours and netizens got great content for making memes. Some highlighted Finch’s performance in IPL 2020 while others reacted with hilarious posts over the veteran batsman’s impressive show against the Men in Blue. Have a look!

Earlier in the match, Australia opted to bat first after winning the toss. The decision looked impeccable as the likes of Mohammed Shami, and Jasprit Bumrah couldn’t trouble the Aussie openers much. Although Indian bowlers created some half chances, Warner and Finch looked solid in the majority of the game. Following his skipper, Warner also brought up his fifty and Indian bowlers need to draw the first blood soon to stay in the contest.
