T20 world cup: Aaron Finch says Australia reaching the final was not unexpected – Latest Cricket News


Australia captain Aaron Finch has made a big statement before the final of the T20 World Cup. He believes that his team reaching the final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is not surprising and after covering such a distance, his team has the necessary talent to become champions for the first time in the format. Australia reached this global competition after facing defeat in all the series played this year. The team had lost to New Zealand, West Indies and Bangladesh before this tournament. However, they defeated Pakistan by five wickets in the second semi-final on Thursday to secure a place in the title match, where they will face New Zealand.

Finch on the eve of the final, ‘It’s not unexpected. We have come here with a clear plan to try to win this tournament. We have always felt that we have the talent to do this and a great combination of players. A lot of people underestimated us before the tournament. So the performance we have done has been really impressive. Everyone has prepared really well and at some point or the other, the team has had a gripping performance. Our players are ready for tomorrow (final).

The captain said, ‘We had a lot of confidence, we were confident about the way we were preparing, our strategy was supporting us. We have come up with a clear plan to win the tournament and we still feel that we have the team to make it happen. The Australian team, which has won the ODI World title five times, has not won a single T20 World Cup title. Finch hopes his team can make a change on Sunday. “Absolutely, this is something we haven’t been able to achieve in the past,” he said. But the fact that we are in the final has given us an opportunity to improve upon it.

The 34-year-old opener said, ‘It will be a great match. New Zealand are a fantastic team, they have reached all (ICC tournament) finals in the last six years. We are waiting for the match. Terming New Zealand as a dangerous team, he said that they cannot be underestimated. He has a lot of potential, experience and skill, so I was not surprised (when New Zealand reached the final) in the slightest. There is a lot of talent in the New Zealand team, they have been the best in the powerplay with the ball for a long time, it will be a challenge.

Finch also said that he is not too worried about the toss because at some point, you have to bat first and win the match. “Obviously in this tournament and earlier in the IPL, the trend is that the team chasing the target wins the match. In the last match, I am really looking forward to lose the toss. I don’t mind batting first but I won the toss (in previous matches). I think if we can score big, we can put pressure on the chasing team.
