One match called off at half-way stage and the other was a complete wash-out in the ongoing Australia-India ODI series. Yes, Aussie opening batsman Aaron Finch is not ruffled.
“It is definitely positive being 2-1 up than being 1-2 down, isn’t it?” he asked at the media interaction as the Australian team came here to warm up with a game of football and for cricket practice at the nearby indoor stadium.
“We cannot control the weather, can we? So, it does not matter whether it is a five-match series or a seven-game one. The best team is still going to win this series. We have still two games left. We are playing good cricket at the moment. India was in a good position the other night (in Ranchi) when the game was called off. I think it is just a case of two games to go… it is like a mini final series. India has to win both to take the series and we need one to annex the series. We obviously are happy leading in the series,” he said.
Finch, who along with Phil Hughes, has been giving good starts to the Australia innings in the ongoing series, thought one-day cricket had become very entertaining now.
“There was probably a chance that Twenty20 could overtake it but I think the way the one-day game has changed now I think it is extremely exciting.”
