Summary

Finch, meanwhile, has played 33 days of first-class or Test cricket in that time and 25 of limited-overs cricket, all of the latter as captain either of Australia or Melbourne Renegades.However, on closer inspection, the plight of Finch becomes clearer. Equally, the playing of one-day and T20 matches does not entail the semi-regular extra days of rest invited by early finishes to long-form games: Paine's total playing days drops down to 56 when accounting for early finishes in the Abu Dhabi, Brisbane and Canberra Tests, whereas Finch only benefited from the first of these.Equally, the mental toll of captaining in the fast-paced white-ball environment is such that it can scramble even the most organised of minds. Finch directed traffic in these final two games despite a niggling back problem, desperate as he was to lift a trophy for the Renegades and in keeping with Cricket Australia's desire to have as many high profile Australian players as possible involved in the tournament's pointy end.Again, here may have been an opportunity for Finch to rest at home, even for a couple of days.
