Talented Australian batsman Aaron Finch feels that his opening partner David Warner has become a better batsman having played alongside Virender Sehwag for four years in the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Delhi Daredevils.

“Four years with Virender Sehwag at Delhi Daredevils certainly made David Warner a better batsman and helped his game a lot. Not only Warner, I have also learnt a lot from Sehwag during my stay at the Daredevils. What was Sehwag’s primary tip for me? Well, to try and hit them as long as possible,” the 27-year-old Finch said during an interaction.

When asked to elaborate about what else Viru had told them, Finch gave a detailed insight.

“Sehwag told us that the important thing about playing in the subcontinent is that at times you can try and capitalise on the new ball when the field is in. The ball is at its best for batting and that’s when you get the opportunity to get ahead in the game. That’s really the message he has sent in the past.

“The way he has batted against the new ball in Test cricket and I think Warner playing IPL with him has helped his game a lot. He once told us that guys who are successful in T20 are also successful in Test cricket,” Finch added.

“They know their game so well and they don’t go too far away from that. David Warner, Virender Sehwag, Shane Watson and Chris Gayle are guys who are successful in all forms of the game. I think it goes on to show that you just have to play good shots. Even Mahela [Jayawardene's] presence helped us a lot.”
