India vs Australia: Aaron Finch wants to carry on ‘exciting’ T20 journey | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Australian Aaron Finch finds Twenty20 cricket ‘exciting’ and has no plans to leave the format anytime soon, the 35-year-old said ahead of their three-game series against India on Monday .
Australia’s white ball captain Finch dropped out of one-day cricket after the home series against New Zealand earlier this month following a prolonged drought in that format.
Finch led Australia to their maiden Twenty20 World Cup title last year and will spearhead their title defense on home soil next month.

“I’m not putting an end date on anything T20 related yet,” the opener said at a press conference ahead of Tuesday’s series opener against India in Mohali.
“It’s always exciting. I love touring with the Australian team.
“In T20 cricket, I feel like my form has been really good for quite a while now. If you separate ODI form and T20 form, they are totally different.”
power hitter Tim Davidwho played 14 international Twenty20 tournaments for Singapore, is set to make his Australian debut in a series pitting the world champions against the top-ranked Twenty20 team.
Finch had no doubt that the 26-year-old, a familiar face in the Twenty20 leagues, was ready for cricket at elite level.
“Being an overseas player (in franchise cricket) sometimes presents challenges because expectations are high,” Finch said.
“So the fact that Tim has been through this before all over the world – it prepares you as best you can for international cricket.”
test captain pat cummins is back after a 10-week break to bolster Australia’s bowling department who would test their mettle against India’s star batting roster, including Virat Kohli.
Kohli came out of his batting slump at the Asian Cup earlier this month, shattering his first international century since November 2019.
Finch said it would be foolish to write off the Indian drummer.
“You would be a very, very brave man to write off Virat at any time,” Finch said.
“He has shown for 15 years now that he is one of the greatest players of all time.
“He’s superb. He’s got 71 international hundreds. That’s just ridiculous, isn’t it?”
