Finn Allen, a batsman for New Zealand who is 23 years old, had an outstanding first game in the ICC Men’s Twenty20 World Cup, which was played in Australia. Allen scored 42 runs for the Kiwis off of only 16 balls, including five fours and three sixes. This was a great start for the Kiwis. Allen was a member of Royal Challengers Bangalore for the IPL 2022 but did not play for the team at any point throughout the competition.
His critical knock quickly sparked supporters of the IPL franchise and other cricket enthusiasts on Twitter, who criticized RCB for letting Finn Allen sit on the bench while he destroyed bowlers in the T20 World Cup.
Fans of the IPL franchise and other cricket enthusiasts on Twitter. During the 2022 Indian Premier League, fans said that playing Allen may have resolved the “powerplay difficulties” that plagued RCB.
“And again, RCB benched Finn Allen for 16 matches in the season while their batters had the worst powerplay strike-rate for the entire season,” a Twitter user said.

Aaron Finch, the captain of the Australian team participating in the Twenty20 World Cup 2022 Super 12, made the opening decision to have New Zealand bat first. Finch, on the other hand, had very little idea of the damage that New Zealand’s opener, Finn Allen, would do.
Allen faced formidable opponents like Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins, and he played the type of strokes that only a genuine T20 cricket player is capable of playing. The batter immediately established a strong foundation for the New Zealand team by smashing the bowlers all around the stadium from the very first ball.
Allen was a complete lunatic for the whole of his time on the field till Josh Hazlewood got him. After he was taken out of the game, New Zealand’s scoring rate went down, even though he had a strike rate of 262.20. After that, Devon Conway joined forces with the captain of the team, Kane Williamson, but Williamson was unable to keep up with the rate at which Allen was scoring.
Williamson was out after he had been responsible for 23 runs off 23 balls. Glenn Phillips, on the other hand, was unable to keep up with Conway for an extended period in the middle and eventually left for 12 off 10.
After that, James Neesham scored 26 runs off 13 balls, while Conway stayed unbeaten on 92 runs after 58 balls, as New Zealand achieved 200 runs despite losing three wickets in the process.
