Vaughan calls Finch the best captain at CWC19
June 14, 2019
Vaughan hailed Finch's shrewd and brave decision-making, and called him the best captain at the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019 so far, as Australia completed their third win of the tournament.Vaughan, who had led England to a historic Ashes triumph in 2005 - their first in 18 years - praised Finch's rotation of bowlers. "He left one [over of spin] late because he wanted to go for the glory with [Pat] Cummins and Starc, and it paid off. That's what you have to do as a captain," he said. "He got a lot of things right in the field, in terms of squeezing at the right time, putting the catchers in at the right time and then spreading them out when a partnership started to develop. I thought he was outstanding as a captain." Vaughan also believed that the defending champions would be among the final four remaining teams in the competition. "I can't see how they won't be in the semi-finals," he said. "Can they win the World Cup playing to the standard they played today? I don't think so. But do they have enough in the locker to improve and win when it really matters? Absolutely."
