Continuity key to T20 World Cup hopes: Finch

It’s a year and a day until their opening match of the men’s T20 World Cup in Australia, but Aaron Finch believes the 14-player squad chosen for the start of this home summer will form the bulk of group selected for that campaign.

Finch, who will lead Australia into their international season opener against Sri Lanka in Adelaide on Sunday if fully recovered from a side strain, admits that injuries and form fluctuations will bring inevitable changes in personnel for the T20 outfit…

  1. I wish that our selectors and the captain, seriously take into consideration the team selection criteria Australia going to apply during the team building process for the T20 WC. They have dropped of their all rounders who performed quite ok during the recent past. Finch confirmed that and using of five specialist bowlers for future matches. As the bowlers all the time are getting hammered in T 20 format, few overs from part timers should be avoided. As long as you have five specialist bowlers (as in our team) there is no need to introduce part time bowlers.

    We made the same silly mistake in yesterday’s practise match. Why the captain decided to give one over to Dhanushka ? Aussies knew very well he was a part timer and they targeted him. Until that over they found it difficult to score runs against our attack. Danushka gave away 15 runs in his over and that was the most expensive over as well. When we had five wkt taking specialist bowlers there was no need to bring in a part timer.

    Even in the 3 future matches we will have an attack consisting of five specialist bowlers. Malinga should not bring in Danushka or any other part timer to make things easy for the Aussies. Only problem at the moment is the consistency of Rajitha. His death bowling has to be improved.
