Finch is cautious of the batting and bowling threat of West Indies
Australian captain Aaron Finch sees the run-scoring power of West Indies ahead of their match today at Trent Bridge.
“They’re a very dangerous side and I think that whichever team comes out and executes it from the start of the game, I think it’s important that you start really well, whether you bat or bowl first,” said Finch in an interview with reporters at Trent Bridge on Wednesday.
This comes after West Indies showed impressive skills in their match with Pakistan where they won by seven wickets.
“Those first 10-over periods are going to be really crucial because we know how damaging the West Indies can be during that period. But equally, if we get off to a good start then we can start to try to get into our work a bit,” continued Finch. “I think if we’re tentative and a bit stand-offish and wait for things to happen, that’s when they can dominate you from the start.”
Australia currently has +325 odds of winning the World Cup.
