Aaron Finch, 35, from Australia claimed that he considers Twenty20 cricket to be “fun” and that he has no immediate plans to stop playing the format before Monday marks the start of their three-match series against India.
Finch remarked, “To write Virat off at any time would take a very, very brave man. For the past 15 years, he has proven that he is among the all-time great players.
Finch spearheaded Australia’s victory in the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup last year and will lead their title defense on home turf the following month.
Before Tuesday’s series start against India in Mohali, the opener said at a news conference, “I’m not putting an end date on anything T20 related just yet.”
“It remains thrilling. I enjoy going on the Australian team’s tours.
“I think I’ve been playing T20 cricket for a while now in pretty great shape. The ODI form and the T20 form are completely different from one another.
In a series that pits the world champion Twenty20 side against the top-ranked Twenty20 team, power-hitter Tim David, who has played 14 Twenty20 Internationals for Singapore, is ready to make his Australia debut.
The 26-year-old, a well-known player in Twenty20 competitions, was prepared for elite-level cricket, in Finch’s opinion.
Because of the high expectations, being an international player in franchise cricket occasionally presents hurdles, according to Finch.
Tim has already had that experience all across the world, so that best prepares you for playing international cricket.
After a 10-week absence, Test skipper Pat Cummins is back to strengthen Australia’s bowling unit, which will be put to the test against India’s all-star batting lineup, which includes Virat Kohli.
At the Asia Cup earlier this month, Kohli broke out of his batting slump, scoring his first century since November of last year.
It would be foolish, according to Finch, to write off the Indian batsmen.
You’d be a very, very courageous man to write Virat out at any time, Finch said.
For the past 15 years, he has proven that he is among the all-time great players.
