What did Australia learn after losing against India? Aaron Finch reveals…
After losing the game, Australia captain Aaron Finch shared what they learnt from the loss. He said, “We learned that we need to be clinical towards the back-end, we didn’t capitalize towards the end. We did drag them back after that blistering start from KL, happy with my own form.”
When asked about his preparation for the first game on 22nd October, Finch said, “He’s fantastic (on Kane Richardson), every opportunity he gets for Australia, he’s there performing, that shows the depth of our pace bowling unit. 22nd will be a great day, looking to start off on a winning note, playing against New Zealand and at the SCG will be always special.”

Rohit Sharma says there is room for improvement
India captain Rohit Sharma said, “It was a great practice game for us. There is room for improvement, but I want more consistency from the bowlers. You need to keep things simple and hit the deck hard. Overall a good game for us, they had a decent partnership and that put us under pressure. He (Shami) is coming back after a long time, so we wanted to give him an over. Wanted to give him a challenge and let him bowl the final over, and you saw what he did.”
