New Delhi: Australian limited-overs captain Aaron Finch dubbed their 3-2 ODI series win over India as “unbelievable” and praised the fight shown by the team to bounce back from 0-2 deficit.
“The resilience and fight that we showed being down 0-2, it would have been easy to roll over in those small moments in the game, just let them drift away and India win the series,” International Cricket Council (ICC) quoted Finch as saying.
“But the fight that we showed, we have had our backs against the walls for quite a while now, so I am really proud of the group. From 2-0 down to win 3-2 is pretty special. I have been coming here for a while now trying to win and have not, so have a lot of Australian players, so it is a special moment,” he added.
That’s a wrap!
