Aaron Finch Stresses Importance of Having Solid Base of Players Ahead of ICC T20 World Cup 2020
Melbourne [Australia], October 25: Australia's Aaron Finch has stressed on forming a 'really solid base' of 14-16 players which will lead them in the forthcoming T20 World Cup. Australia, on October 8, announced their 14-man squad for the T20I series against Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Australia will play a three-match T20I series against both the teams. "We know what style we want to go with over the next twelve months, so I think that makes it a little bit clearer to be able to map out how you go about that. Steven Smith and David Warner Return to Australia’s Squad for Three-Match T20 Series Against Sri Lanka.
So I expect that to be a little bit smoother (than the World Cup lead-in), and obviously with form and injuries and stuff, the personnel can change," Cricket.com.au quoted Finch as saying."But these 14 guys that we've got here, that's a plan to move forward with them over the next 12 months leading up to that (T20) World Cup. To form a really solid base of 14-16 players that can take us into that World Cup," he added. Australia Has A Great Chance To Lift T20 World Cup 2020 on Home Soil: Aaron Finch.
Finch also wants continuity in the team to work towards the premier tournament."We've seen the T20 format over the years is probably the format where guys have rested a lot. And that will probably change leading into a World Cup I daresay," he said."So I think it will be a great opportunity for the 14 guys picked here to have that continuity and try and form that bond together and work towards hopefully all being part of a World Cup," Finch added. Australia will compete against Sri Lanka for the first T20I on October 27.
