Having made his international debut in 2011, Aaron Finch has faced some absolutely legendary bowlers during his career. Australia’s limited-overs captain is currently one of the best white-ball batsmen in the world. There are very few batsmen in the world who are as dangerous as an in-form Finch. When in his elements, the right-handed batsman could tear apart any bowling lineup in the world.
But just like any other batsmen, Finch too has struggled against many bowlers during his illustrious career. The Australian batsman recently held a question-answer session on Twitter where he answered a range of questions related to his career. One of the question asked by his fans was the toughest bowlers he has faced in his career.
In reply, Finch revealed that he had a tough time while facing former Sri Lanka spinner Muttiah Muralitharan and former Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal. Muralitharan is arguably the greatest spinner to have played the game. No bowler has taken more wickets than him in international cricket. He retired from the game after picking up a staggering 800 Test wickets and 534 ODI wickets.
Ajmal was also one of the best spinners if not the best of his time. He was really difficult to pick as batsmen across the world found it tough to deal with him. He retired from the game with 178 Tests wickets, 184 ODI wickets and 85 T20I wickets.

Finch, meanwhile, has been doing a fine job as captain. Towards the end of the last year, Australia rewarded him for his fine displays with the bat by naming him the captain of the ODI and the T20I side. Earlier this year, he led Australia to ODI series wins against India and Pakistan. In the World Cup, Australia made it to the semifinal. In the ongoing home season, they thrashed Sri Lanka and Pakistan in T20I series.
