Australian Cricket team’s limited-overs skipper Aaron Finch is keen to use the upcoming break in cricket should help him regain his form and momentum. Meanwhile, he also admitted that he was the weak link for Australia during his sides 2-1 loss to Indian National Cricket team. Aaron Finch scored 26 runs from three innings with the highest score of 14.
Owing to poor form, the management left out Finch from the last Tests against India. As a result, they also left him out of the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka starting from January 24. However, he will ply his trade for the Melbourne Renegades in the BBL before taking on the national duties again. Australia will take on India and Pakistan before the World Cup in England and Wales.
“It’ll be good to be at home and to spend some time around some friends again,” Finch said. “It was obviously a disappointing series. Nowhere near as many runs as I would have liked or as big an impact with the bat. We’ve seen some real improvement in the way we’ve batted in the last three ODIs in particular. I was probably the weak link in that which is disappointing for me as the captain of the side,” he added.
Finch to work on his techniques
Aaron Finch is likely to spend some time off his family during a holiday in April before he gears up for the World Cup. However, immediately post that, the skipper seems certain on fine-tuning a few technical flaws which India’s bowler figured.
“I think this time will be really good to be able to work on my game with some more time in the schedule,” Finch said.
“I think it will allow me to work on specific things in my game. When you’re trying to tinker with a few things with a day in between games and things like that, you don’t have enough time to hit enough balls to be able to get that set. I’m really excited about the next couple of weeks to work on my game and hopefully get that right. I’ve got a lot of confidence in myself that I can do that but time will tell,” he concluded.
