“In the end, it came down to one thing – India’s spinners outbowled Australia’s. It was a fantastic game, much lower-scoring than we expected, and the conditions played a big part.”. Aaron Finch said

I spoke to Rahul Dravid before the game and he didn’t expect there to be any dew. He was really surprised when it came down and said that India would have batted first as well. You can’t allow Jadeja, Kuldeep and Ashwin to bowl how they want to bowl on a surface like that. They’re so accurate and so highly skilled – Jadeja has done it to Australia so many times now.

Part of it comes down to how India bowled spin. But we also need to look at the way that Australia batted. There was a clear plan among the group to be proactive. They to try to limit dot balls and rotate strike against what they knew would be a world-class group of spinners.

Aaron Finch further said that

There was a bit of a lack of aggression from the Australian batters. I think they’ll be disappointed by the intent they showed. And the fact that they weren’t able put any pressure back on India. It needs a mindset shift, to look to be on the front foot a little more and take some calculated risks.

That being said, everything felt possible when India were two for three. The atmosphere in the ground was amazing, when the ball went in the air with Virat on 12. It went dead silent and there was a kind of collective groan that I’ve never heard before.. Aaron Finch concludes
