‘It is the way that we want to play cricket moving ahead’-Aaron Finch reveals the manner in which Australia will play cricket moving forward

Aaron Finch, the captain of the Australian cricket team, praised his team’s bowlers for their aggressive approach in the second one-day international match against New Zealand.

In the second one-day international (ODI), Australia triumphed against New Zealand by a staggering margin of 113 runs to establish a commanding 2-0 lead in the three-match series. The Australian bowlers were at the top of their game, and the Blackcaps batting order was shaken up by the aggressive bowling the Australians delivered.

The New Zealand bowlers got the game off to a strong start, but Australia was still able to post a total of 191 runs in their first innings thanks to a half-century scored by Steve Smith and some outstanding cameos scored by the tail end of their batting order. With four wickets to his credit, Trent Boult was the Blackcaps’ most effective bowler.

In their response, New Zealand was bowled out for 82 runs, with Kane Williamson scoring the most runs for them with 17. The home team’s Adam Zampa was responsible for five wickets.

Aaron Finch, the captain of Australia, expressed his joy after his team won the second one-day international match against New Zealand. He praised the magnificent half-century that Steve Smith had produced, but he also mentioned the contribution that the Australian tail had made to lead them to a score that was competitive in the end.

Even though Adam Zampa had five wickets, Mitchell Starc was awarded the Man of the Match prize. Finch said that the pitch became slower and lower and that the pacers played a significant role in putting pressure on New Zealand. To capitalize on the pressure that was being applied by the Australian pacers, Adam Zampa produced an outstanding spell.

What did Aaron Finch say?

“Before the tail showed us how it needed to be done, the first 40 overs of our batting were really tough. Excellent innings from Steve Smith,” Aaron Finch said after the team had triumphed in the game.

“The wicket gradually slowed down and became lower as play continued. The asking rate eventually reached five runs per over as the demand intensified. Zampa was successful in taking wickets, but the wickets were set up by the seamers. We were aware that the surface would worsen and become slower as the game went on,” added Finch.

Finch said that they want to continue playing this aggressive and attacking style of cricket when it was all said and done. The Australian bowlers showed no mercy throughout the game, and they want to continue playing with the same level of aggression in the key matches that are coming up in the near future.

“We believe that we have the ability to be combative and hostile. It is the way that we want to play cricket moving ahead,” Finch said further.
