Finch defends Warner’s sluggish batting against India

After winning first 2 games against Afghanistan and West Indies, Australia ran out of gas against a top quality Indian side as the Kangaroos were defeated by 36 runs. Batting first, India posted a gigantic total of 352 on board which was later defended by bowlers to handle the unit 2 important points.

One of the most discussed aspects of the game was the innings of the opening batsman David Warner who produced a lethargic batting outing which saw him amassing 56 runs eating up 84 important balls. What makes it an even more horrible reading is the fact that 50 of those 84 balls were dots. Cricket pundits were quick to raise eyebrows towards Australia’s belligerent batsman.

However, skipper Aaron Finch came to rescue the New South Wales against all the backlash. The 32-year old while reflecting on the loss against India added that Warner was treated with some quality bowling so he found it hard to get going. Moreover, calling Warner a world-class batsman, the Victoria born is confident about him coming back strongly in the remaining games of the tournament.
