The veteran Australian all-rounder, Glenn Maxwell has come forward in support of T20 skipper Aaron Finch to find his mojo back when Australia will be playing a three-match bilateral T20I series in India. Maxwell said that Finch reckons batting in India and he will enjoy the three-match series against the men in blue under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma.

Aaron Finch decided to retire from ODI cricket after the New Zealand series but will continue to lead the country’s T20 side, including at this year’s World Cup. Finch made his retirement announcement after going through a poor run of batting form in the ODIs, as he had managed to score only 26 runs from his last seven ODI innings.

Talking to the reporters on Wednesday, as per the quotes in India Today, Glenn Maxwell said, “He’ll certainly enjoy having these games in India, he enjoys batting there. Once he gets out on the field and takes control of the team out there, he’s been able to focus on the job at hand really well and that’s a credit to him.”

Glenn Maxwell further asserted that one cannot discount Finch’s value as the captain of the T20 team, considering he is a brilliant strategist.

Glenn Maxwell explained, “Obviously, it wasn’t the easiest time for him in one-day cricket but his attitude has never changed. He was brilliant with the strategy side of things. It’s a very underrated thing in T20. Don’t discount his value as captain.”

Mitchell Starc said it would be difficult to win back-to-back T20 World Cups but was confident about Australia will start favorites to win the tournament.

The lanky pacer said, “We have a very similar squad to the one that won 12 months ago. Playing in Australia will be a big part of it, playing in front of our home fans, family and friends which comes with that added pressure as well.”
