Melbourne Renegades’ captain Aaron Finch vented out his frustration on a chair after the right-handed batsman was dismissed during the Big Bash League 2019 final against Melbourne Stars at the Docklands Stadium on Sunday, February 17. Finch was run-out at non-striker’s end on an individual score of 13 and that led to his frustration.
The Renegades captain has been out-of-form throughout this season of BBL and the tournament capped off on a sad note for him. During his ten-ball stay, Finch smashed two fours. Finch was dismissed on the last ball of the sixth over with Renegades score reading 47 for three.

Cameron White played a straight shot back towards the bowler. However, the ball ricocheted off bowler Jackson Bird’s shoe and then hit the stumps at the non-striker’s end. TV replays showed Finch was short of the crease and thus was given the marching orders. On his way back to the hutch, Finch smashed a chair which was lying inside the tunnel towards the pavilion.
