Australian white-ball captain Aaron Finch became a father on September 8, 2021, after he and his wife Amy welcomed a baby girl into the world. This is the couple’s first child. Finch is currently rehabbing from his knee surgery as he fights against time to be fit for T20 World Cup 2021.
Finch had announced the pregnancy in March 2021 on Instagram when he had posted a caption reading, “Our family of four is about to become five, with the addition of a little baby girl. We are beyond excited and can’t wait to meet our princess!”. The ‘family of four’ that Finch referred to was himself, his wife Amy, and their two dogs.

Aaron Finch suffered a knee injury during the limited-overs series in the West Indies and had to fly back to Australia. As soon as he was out of the mandated 14-day quarantine, Finch underwent surgery and will be undergoing a recovery time of eight to 10 weeks as he aims to be fit for the T20 World Cup.
He had played five T20Is in West Indies despite the discomfort in the knee, but aggravated the injury in the final game and was ruled out of the recent Bangladesh tour, as the injury was diagnosed as cartilage damage.
“His recovery is expected to take 8-10 weeks meaning he should be available for the opening games of the World Cup in mid-October,” a Cricket Australia statement said.
Matthew Wade had captained Australia in Bangladesh T20Is, which Australia lost miserably and extended their record of losing their last 5 T20I series against England, India, New Zealand, West Indies, and Bangladesh.
