ICC World Cup 2019: Aaron Finch Reveals Australia’s Forte
Australian skipper Aaron Finch has shared the advantage which his team has over other teams in the upcoming World Cup. One can never rule out Australia as they have the experience of winning the big matches. In fact, Australia’ track record in the last one year in the ODI format hasn’t been impressive. However, the return of Steven Smith and David Warner has added a shot in the arm of the side.
On the other hand, Australia was at their best in their last two ODI series. Australia was able to surprise India in latter home conditions as they won the ODI series by 3-2. Furthermore, they were able to clean sweep Pakistan by 5-0 in the UAE. Thus, Australia has picked up the impetus at the right time.
Australia knows what it takes to win the World Cup – Aaron Finch.
Australia has won the World Cup title on five occasions and they know how to win the big matches. Consequently, Australia will like to come up with collective performance.
Australian captain Aaron Finch said, “I think it’s a big advantage, just to know what it takes to win a World Cup and what it takes to manage your way through a campaign which can be difficult. You have to be at your best at the business end but you can’t afford to let anything slip at the start. Six guys who have been there and done that will (from 2015 World Cup squad) give a lot of experience to the others of what to expect, what to feel walking out there because it is different.
“When you talk so much about it, when it finally happens it’s a relief to be looking forward. The fact everyone is together and getting on great, the boys are pumped to ramp up the preparations. It really is the time of your life a World Cup so that will be awesome,” added the right-hander.
Subsequently, Australia will like to come up with the complete performance. In fact, for the first time in the last 30 years, Australia is not considered as favourites for the World Cup. However, this can take away the pressure from their players who would like to tick the right boxes. Meanwhile, Australia will begin their World Cup campaign against Afganistan on 1st June.
Furthermore, David Warner and Steven Smith are back in the squad for the Australian team. Both these players have been instrumental in the success of the team and they would like to hit the ground running in the World Cup.
