ICC Cricket World Cup: Aaron Finch reckons he’s close to the ‘big one’

Australian opening batsman, Aaron Finch knows he is the one Australian batsman struggling for runs ahead of Thursday`s World Cup semis clash against defending champion India but, ever confident, thinks a big innings is just around the corner.

Aaron Finch opened his campaign with an aggressive 135 runs against England but has struggled since, ammasing just 54 runs in his previous five innings as co-hosts Australia charged into the last four of the ICC World Cup.

Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting said this week Finch`s technical flaws were revealed when he was struggling for runs and the 28 years old has been working with former test all-rounder Andrew McDonald in addition to the Australian coaching squad.

He told reporters on Tuesday that it is nothing that he is overly concerned about, it is just going back to look at the basics of his technique, something that he falls back on when he is not getting a whole lot of runs.

He was quoted saying: “Whenever you don`t get runs, it starts to build up. Whatever happens on Thursday will happen, I`m not one who over-analyses it too much. When you look down the batting list, everyone`s been playing perfectly and I`m probably the only one who`s missed out in the last couple of games.”

He further said that he is confident going into this match, he has got no reason not to be. He is hitting the ball nicely and he is looking for huge runs.

The aggressive Australian opener is almost certain to keep his place in the team despite his paucity of runs, barring a shock action for Shane Watson back up the order to open with dynamic David Warner.

Although Aaron Finch does not want to analyze his form in detail, he has clearly given plenty of thought to how a turnaround in fortunes might come about on Thursday.
