Digital Desk, Colombo. Australia’s T20 and ODI captain Aaron Finch is going through poor form these days. At the same time, the team is preparing to defend the ICC T20 World Cup title at home later this year and former country all-rounder Shane Watson on Monday said that the captain’s form is a matter of concern for Australia.
There is a growing demand for Finch’s removal from the team but Australian legend Watson feels that the search for a new opener may be too late as there may not be much time left for the T20 World Cup.
Finch has been dismissed in single digits nine times in his last 18 T20Is for Australia in the last one year. He managed to score half-centuries only twice during this period. The 35-year-old Finch also did not look in good form during the IPL 2022 season for Kolkata Knight Riders as he scored 86 runs in five matches.
Watson said on Monday, what I saw during IPL especially for KKR was not very good and it got me thinking. He added, “But there is a lot of cricket for the ICC T20 World Cup and I know he will work through it as much as he can and as for Australia, I really hope he manages to get over it,” he added. .
Watson said, Finch has the skills and is one of the greatest short-form batsmen to have played for Australia, so he will definitely come out of poor form. But Watson said with less than four months to go for the T20 World Cup, it may be too late for Australia to find a new opener.
He added, “I hope Finch is working on his technique at this point in time and he is able to correct his mistakes.” He has many matches to fix it till the T20 World Cup.
