Australia National Cricket Team skipper Aaron Finch, who recently retired from ODIs, showered praise on the star India National Cricket Team batter Virat Kohli and said that an opposition team will have to be very brave to “write off Virat at any stage.”

Virat Kohli was in terrific form in the recently concluded Asia Cup 2022. He also smashed his much-awaited 71st international century in the Super 4 game against Afghanistan. Overall, he scored 276 runs in five matches at a brilliant strike rate of 147.59, including 2 fifties and a century.

Australia National Cricket Team will take on India National Cricket Team in the first match of the three-match T20I series at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali, Chandigarh on Tuesday, September 20.

Speaking at a press conference on the eve of the first T20I, Finch said that Kohli is one of the all-time greats.

“You’d be a very, very brave man to write off Virat at any stage,” Finch said.

“He’s shown for 15 years now that he’s one of the greatest players of all time. He’s superb. He’s got 71 international hundreds. That’s just ridiculous, isn’t it?”

Finch also said that he has no plans to quit the T20 format as he still finds the format exciting and believes that his form in the 20-over format has been really good.

“I’m not putting an end date on anything T20 related just yet,” the opener told a news conference ahead of Tuesday’s series opener against India in Mohali.

“It’s still exciting. I love touring with the Australian team. In T20 cricket I feel as though my form has been really good for quite a while now. If you separate the ODI form and the T20 form, they’re totally different.”

Aaron Finch further said that the explosive batter Tim David, who will most likely make his debut for Australia in the T20I series against India, is completely ready for international cricket.

“Being an overseas player (in franchise cricket) has its challenges at times, because the expectations are high,” Finch said.

“So the fact that Tim has experienced that all around the world already – that prepares you as well as you can for international cricket.”
