Australia’s limited-overs captain Aaron Finch finally shared the dressing room with Virat Kohli in IPL. Aaron Finch has revealed how Virat Kohli surprised him with his attitude as a captain.
He revealed how the India skipper focused just on RCB and not on the opposition. Finch stated how Kohli had immense faith in his players and how he backed them to win.
“What really surprised me was how, he obviously does a lot of planning and preparation himself, and into the opposition, but he never focused more on the opposition than his own team. At Bangalore, he was always confident in the XI players that were picked and knew that if you played well, you had every chance of winning,” Aaron Finch was quoted as saying by ‘Sydney Morning Herald’.
“I was really surprised by how confident he was in everyone, he had a lot of time for everyone. He was great around the group, a lot more relaxed. I had never played with him, I had only played against him,” he added.
The three-time finalists had started the tournament on a stunning note by winning seven of their first ten games. However, they lost form in the second half of the competition and bowed out with a defeat to Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Eliminator.
Aaron Finch had a word of advice for his teammates ahead of the Test series between India and Australia. Finch has urged his compatriots to strike a “fine balance” when they confront Virat Kohli in the opening Test of the much-anticipated four-match series. Finch pointed out that Kohli could be ruthless if provoked too much.
“I think there will be times when things boil over and when you have got strong characters on either team that’s going to come to a head at some point. (But) there is a fine balance there, isn’t there? You don’t want him (Kohli) to get up and about in the contest. When he does, he can be ruthless on an opposition,” said Aaron Finch.
