Ponting hails Finch for backing instinct in key moments
There’s some really good vibes around the team. You put all those things in the mixing pot together, it’s not rocket science – you’re going to get good results.
“The way that Finchy is leading this team now right through this tournament has been outstanding,” Ponting told cricket.com.au. “The way he’s using his bowlers and not just using them at the moment, but he’s thinking forward in the game as well. He’s very in-tune, but he’s also very confident in believing in what he thinks is right and going with that.”
Throughout the tournament, Australia have seized key moments in the game to dent their opponent’s progress. Their 86-run victory over New Zealand, at Lord’s, was no different.
