The skipper of the Australia Cricket Team, Aaron Finch, ahead of the series, stated that playing ICC World Cup 2023 is one of his personal goals at the moment. He wishes to be fit and in-form when the tournament arrives in the cricket calendar. For the same, he might even give up Test cricket after having a chat with the selection panel of Cricket Australia.
Aaron Finch had always been the massive player for Australia, scoring many match-winning knocks for the team. He is in the glorious form at the moment and also leading the Australian team from the front. In the next assignment, he will lead his side against the strong Indian National Cricket Team led by Virat Kohli.
That’s 100 per cent a goal of mine down the track – Aaron Finch
Speaking ahead of the series, Aaron Finch stated that he is looking to play ICC World Cup 2023, which will be played in India. The 33-year old batsman hopes that he would be fit enough even at the age of 37 by sorting out his fitness issues.
“I’d love to be, no doubt. At 33 now, I think my game is in as good a place as it’s ever been. That’s (playing 2023 World Cup) a definite goal of mine. That will come down to form and fitness; the desire won’t be any less than it is,” Finch was quoted as saying by ‘Sydney Morning Herald’. I know it’s a cliche, taking it one tour at a time, but that’s 100 per cent a goal of mine down the track.”
It gives us a lot of confidence –
Recently, the skipper Aaron Finch said that Australia has the goods to give Virat Kohli’s men a run for their money. He further added that sub-continent teams are always tough to beat, but he believes in his team to make the difference.
“India or Pakistan… or Sri Lanka. They can make you start doubting yourself. Knowing that our game plan is good enough and knowing that our skills are good enough to beat India in India. That gives us a lot of confidence going there,” skipper Aaron Finch said.
The two sides face each other in Mumbai on January 14 before heading to Rajkot and then Bangalore for what will be Australia’s first limited-overs games since the World Cup in England last year. Australia scripted an unexpected comeback to win the five-match ODI series 3-2 in India 12 months ago after losing the first two games.
