“We understand that we haven’t played our best in these tournaments,”. We’ve had an interrupted preparation like everyone has over the last 18 months. We’re still very confident though.
“We know that if we play at our best we’re going to be hard to beat, we can match it with the best in the world. “We feel as though our squad is well rounded, we’ve got options to play different combinations, different structures to the side, so there’s definite motivation but we’ve just got to be at our best at the right time.”
David Warner will Open for Australia, Finch Says
“He is one of the best players to have ever played the game for Australia,” Finch said, locking in his long-term opening partner to be there when Australia begin their tournament against South Africa. “While he would have loved to be playing for Hyderabad, no doubt, I know that he is still training away. He’ll be good to go.”
Finch also commented about Glenn Maxwell role in the team.
“He is a world-class player, when he is on, he is as destructive as anyone in the world. He is someone who in World Cups has shown in the past, whether that’s T20 or 50-over, that he can win games for Australia off his own bat.
“When he is firing his bowling is really important and is going to be really important to the structure of our team. His fielding is the best in the world and his batting is unbelievable.
“He is a really important cog in our team. We’re really happy with how he is going.”
Steve Smith Will suit the Middle Order, Says Aaron Finch
“What we’re going to do is be really flexible through that middle part of the game,” he said. “There is a lot of power there and there is a lot of ways we can go about it.
“He is a brilliant player of spin, he is someone who can adapt to all situations of the game, so we see that as a real asset for us.
“His game speaks for itself. The 360 nature of his game is really suited to our middle order. He is someone who will be in there, no doubt.”
