'I have got a really solid game plan': Finch on the New Zealand challenge

Aaron Finch, the Australian T20I skipper has not been in the best of forms in 2022. But, Finch the batter will surely be a very important part in Australia's plans for the World Cup. While they will be looking up at David Warner for the explosive starts, Finch will be expected to hold one end.

But since the beginning of his career Finch has struggled with the incoming deliveries. Especially, when the ball has swung in from a left-arm pacer, he has struggled even more. One of his biggest nemesis in this case has been the ace Kiwi pacer Trent Boult.

However, this time before the opening clash of the T20 World Cup 2022 against New Zealand, Finch feels he is prepared enough to change the tracks. He believes that the time he spend in the nets with Daniel Vettori will help him in the case. 

There's some  technical things I can do to a left-armer: Aaron Finch

"We've obviously got Dan Vettori who can throw and stick left-handed. It's just doing it more and more."

"Trent is an unbelievable bowler, he has been for 10 to 12 years now. When you're opening the batting you're going to get out to someone eventually. He probably had my number no doubt."

"I still feel as though I've got a really solid game plan. There's some technical things I can do to a left-armer that can help that."

Finch also stated that he will make sure not to over think about the Boult-issue and play the game concentrating on each ball that comes to him. 

To the relief of Finch and the Australian team, he recovered a bit of his form in the warm-up match against India by scoring 76 runs off 54 deliveries.
