Australia lost their first game of the ICC World T20 2014 to Pakistan thanks to some good spin bowling from the opposition. Although Glenn Maxwell’s pyrotechnics had put Australia in a winning position, Saeed Ajmal led a fightback and helped Pakistan beat the Aussies.

Aaron Finch, who scored a fifty in the first game, knows that the Australians would be tested by spin in their upcoming encounters. Speaking to the media ahead of their clash against West Indies, which is slated for Thursday, Finch spoke about the test posed by Samuel Badree and Sunil Narine.

“Badree’s opened the bowling for them for a few games now and he’s an interesting bowler,” Finch was quoted by Cricket Australia’s (CA) official website. “He bowls a great length, so he’s someone hard to hit down the ground and it’s a bit of a risk if you go across the line, so he’s someone we’re going to have to come up with some pretty clear plans against,” Finch said about the West Indian leg-spinner.

Speaking about Narine, Finch said, “A lot of the guys have played him quite a bit in the IPL and in the Big Bash. Having faced him quite a bit, we’re going to have our plans, but he’s still a quality bowler, he spins it both ways, and anyone who does that is going to present a challenge.”

Finch acknowledged the fact that Australia are not in an ideal position and that they need to play well in the upcoming game. He did maintain though that Australia are an aggressive team and will continue to play that way.
