Finch, who has retired from ODIs last year, is currently leading Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League. Clarke was removed by the BCCI from his commentary panel after a video of the former Australian captain can be heard pleading innocence to his girlfriend after being accused of having an affair with his ex.
