Finch cautious about 'one of the best' Kohli

The captain of this edition of Australia is not seeing the end of his T20 career soon.

A few days ago there was discussion and criticism in the cricket world about Virat Kohli's form. He gave a glimpse of his return to form with a great performance in the last Asia Cup. So Aaron Finch is very cautious before facing the Indian star batsman. According to Australia's T20 captain, a batsman of Kohli's quality is not under any circumstances.

Kohli has been in the news for a long time due to a century drought at first, followed by a day-by-day decline in form. After more than a month of rest, he returned to the field with the Asia Cup and proved himself. With the bat in his hand, Rush pulled him to practice running.

The only century in the tournament came from Kohli's bat. With a strike rate of 147.59 in two fifties and an average of 92, he scored the second-highest run of 276.

Kohli looked his best in the last match of the Super Four. He played an excellent inning of 122 unbeaten runs off 61 balls against Afghanistan. Through which his century drought of 1 thousand and 20 days is cut. With the warm touch of the century for the first time in international T20.

This time Australia will fight with India. The three-match T20I series will begin on Tuesday in Mohali. Almost all the regular members including Kohli are in the Indian team. Finch expressed his thoughts about Kohli in the previous day's press conference.

"It's over, you have to be very, very brave to think like that at any stage. 15 years have shown that he is one of the best of all time. He is awesome. He has 71 international centuries. It's just incredible, isn't it?”

“Especially in T20s, he is someone who has improved his game over a long period of time. As a result, you always have to go into the field against him with the best plan and maximum preparation.”

Finch said goodbye to ODI cricket this month. However, he has no plans to quit T20 cricket for now. He will lead Australia in this edition of the World Cup at home. He said that he wants to continue playing in 20-over cricket.

“I am not setting any deadline for T20 cricket right now. This version is still thrilling to me. I love going on tour with the Australian team. It seems my form has been really good in T20 cricket for quite some time now."

The main reason behind leaving the ODI leadership was Finch's consistently poor batting form. But he is doing well in T20. Has tasted the fifties in two of the last four matches. He has scored 247 runs in 9 matches in this edition so far this year with a strike rate of 121.67 and an average of 30.87.

The remaining two T20s of Australia-India are on Friday and Sunday. After that, Finch's team will play two T20Is against West Indies and three T20Is against England at home. Their World Cup journey will begin on October 22 with a match against neighboring New Zealand.
