Aaron Finch is continuing to think and plan about the upcoming cricket tournaments even though the COVID-19 sent cricket for a long break. Finch in an interview told how he is looking forward to the upcoming World Cups amid all uncertainty.
No break from cricket for Finch
Despite the extended lockdown since March, Aaron Finch, the limited-overs captain of Australia cricket team Aaron Finch can’t stop thinking of the upcoming showpiece events. “I’m a cricket nuffy so you are always thinking about it, especially being captain and with what’s coming up with the T20 World Cup, whenever that might be, and there’s a couple of them and looking forward to the 2023 50-over World Cup in India.”
Finch added, “We are just in the processing of nutting out how we go about winning that, what we’ll need to do down the track to be successful in those three tournaments.”
A detailed plan in mind of skipper
He told SEN Radio how Australia need to have a detailed plan to win the World Cup in 2023. Since their World Cup exit against England, Australia have played seven ODIs so far. The 50-over World Cup will be hosted in India as per the schedule and so Finch is keeping the circumstances in mind while planning for the same. “In the 50-over space, it’s about working back from that 2023 World Cup and really getting a detailed plan of how we think we’ll have to win it, what’s the structure of the side we’ll need in India. Is it going to be two spinners, is it going to be an extra allrounder and kind of work back from there.”
The skipper opined,”[We need to] nut out what resources we’ll need in terms of players. If there’s someone new we identify who could perhaps have a big impact, how many games can we get into them over the next two and a half years to make sure they have enough experience so in a high-pressure semi-final you aren’t going in hoping they’ll do well, you know they have the form and enough experience behind them to make sure they are comfortable with international level.”
Finch explained it is important to work out keeping the data and future ODI cricket trends in mind. He believes that they should start choosing the players according to the game plan. “It’s not rocket science, it’s going through data, a bit of gut instinct of what you feel will be the trends of one-day cricket. Will it be 400, or will it be that 320-mark with some wearing pitches in India and a couple of spinners in your side?”
