Cricket News Finch believes his hitting technique can help defend his title
Cricket News Finch believes his batting technique can help defend his title. Australia limited team captain Aaron Finch believes that technical adjustments to his hitting technique can help him end his “pretty slim patch” ahead of defending this year’s Twenty20 World Cup title. Finch only managed one fifty in four limited matches in Pakistan. Prior to joining Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League in April. He went on to score one fifty in five innings for the two-time IPL champions, who failed to reach the playoffs.
“It’s a pretty slim patch,” Finch told reporters Monday. “I’ve been through that many times in my career. Sometimes, you go through stages where you get a lot of hasty runs. And then go through some tough parts.” Finch said he was working on the technical aspects of his shot to get back into running ahead of cricket’s busy period for Australia.
“When you’re worried about the ball swinging back on your front pad, you tend to open up, which then has a bit of a flow-on effect,” says the opener.
“So it’s just trying to get back to being a bit more square and making sure that I give myself every chance to get past the first five or six balls. And then at T20 or ODI, you can flow from that.” Finch will play a limited eight games in Sri Lanka next month. Australia is also scheduled to play home series against Zimbabwe, New Zealand, West Indies, and England ahead of the World Cup in October-November.
Solid Cricket Schedule
“With such a hectic cricket schedule, there’s a lot of time to build. And I think getting back into the cricket line is one day in particular,” said Finch.
“We haven’t played a lot in the last few years, so it’s going to be really fun to try and get some big shots and keep everyone away from me for a while.” Finch, 35, has had a great international career in a shorter format and I’m always happy to see him play. But there comes a time when you have to start thinking about what’s best for the team. And as Australia prepare to defend their World Cup crown at home, that may mean the team is playing without him.
Australia’s cricket captain Aaron Finch has admitted he has been through a rough patch. But hopes the busy schedule ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup at home later this year will help him get back to his best. “It’s a pretty lean patch. I’ve been through it many times in my career. Sometimes, you go through a stage where you get the stack running in a hurry and then go through some lean patches,” Finch was quoted as saying. said by cricket.com.au on Monday. The 35-year-old cricketer’s poor form has continued since the ICC T20 World Cup in the UAE late last year. He managed to score 23, 0, and 0 in the three One-day Internationals Australia played against Pakistan in March-April this year but finished the tour with 55 in T20I one time.
