Aaron Finch admits about intense competition in Australia's T20 unit

The last few months have not been ideal for Australia’s Aaron Finch. The swashbuckling opener was axed from Australia’s T20I captaincy after India defeated the Kangaroos in the T20I series in January. To add to that, a hamstring injury also cut short Finch’s time in the middle, but the opener is willing to make amends now.

Finch, in his latest interaction with the media admitted that there was intense competition within Australia’s T20 setup. “There’s potentially four guys that can open the batting in that squad,” Finch said. “Whoever gets first crack in the side is going to have to perform and try and sure up their spot. “It’s one of those things that you’re never quite sure which way the selectors will go. “I’ve performed pretty well in Twenty20 cricket for a while now for Australia.”

As many as 4 options are available to open the innings for Australia, and Finch spoke about the same issue. “Whenever guys are in great form, and definitely Usman and Watto (Watson) and Davey (Warner) have been in great nick as well, there’s going to be that pressure regardless of who it is, regardless of how many runs they’ve scored.” “It’s just a case of putting another case forward and whichever way they do go at the start of the series I’m sure there’ll be challengers breathing down their neck.”

Finch admitted that he was a tad disappointed after being axed from captaincy. “It’s disappointing, no doubt,” he said. “I was really looking forward to leading Australia into a world tournament. “I was disappointed but I can understand the way that the selectors have decided to go. “Steve Smith is obviously the captain of the other two formats. He’s a fantastic captain and I’m sure he’ll do very well.”
