Australian opener Aaron Finch’s wife, Amy Finch has revealed that she has received sexual assault threats and violence threats after Aaron has failed to perform in his recent outings for Australia. Notably, Australia has been taking on New Zealand in a five-match T20I series and Finch has failed to make a mark for the Kangaroos.
In the couple of T20is played so far, Finch has gone on to score just 13 runs. The Australian team have had a couple of forgetful months in the international circuit as they were beaten by India in the T20I series and the Border-Gavaskar trophy. Now, in the five-match T20I series, they trail to New Zealand by 2-0 and Australian fans are absolutely upset.
Aaron Finch’s Wife Amy Finch Reports Sexual Assualt And Violence Threats
After Finch’s failure with the bat, there are a lot of questions being raised over the veteran Australian’s place on the national side. Mark Waugh has recently hinted that he might be removed from the national team if he fails to perform with the bat. However, now the troll have taken over Finch’s personal life as his wife has received sexual assault threats.
Amy Finch shared a disgusting comment left underneath one of her posts this week taken aim at her and the One Day International Australian captain.
‘Tell your husband to step up his captaincy bloody loser f**king a**hole b*tch because of him I lost all my money,’ the comment read.
Ms Finch fired back with a lengthy post and said this ‘c*** happens far too often. Part of me doesn’t want to give this individual the satisfaction of a response,’ Ms Finch wrote. “I don’t appreciate it, neither does my husband who is battling and doing everything he possibly can to get back into the runs.”
Ms Finch said trolls have been attacking her, her husband and other family members for years but had to say something after the threats turned violent.
“I have a pretty thick skin and can generally ignore them but recently there have been direct threats of violence and sexual assault,” she wrote. “You name it, I’ve heard it. It’s gotten to a point where it needs to be called out because ignoring it doesn’t stop these people.”
Aaron Finch Goes Unsold In The IPL 2021 Auction
Aaron Finch has had one of the forgetful returns to cricket after the pandemic as he has failed to deliver with the bat in any of the tournaments played so far. He had one of the poorest outings during IPL 2020 when he played for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and the same form continued in the Big Bash League (BBL 2020-21) for his side, Melbourne Renegades.
As a result, Finch was released by RCB ahead of the IPL 2021 auction and he went unsold in the auction. After the auction, Finch had gone on to say that he was expecting to be unsold in the auction. Meanwhile, Australia have failed to win a game in the T20I series so far and if New Zealand will win the next match, they will win the series.
