Australia‘s Aaron Finch revealed that Australia are eager to lift the ICC World T20 2016 trophy. Australia are the current champions of the ICC Cricket World Cup and are in a very good phase beating India in both the One-Day Internationals (ODIs) in the five match series and are dominating in the series. They also defeated England at their home in their previous ODI encounter while won Test series against both New Zealand and West Indies. Finch is one of the key players for the world champions in the limited over format and he proved his worth well in the second ODI against India as he scored 71 opening for his side which provided them with a steady start and guided them to an easy victory.

In an interview to The Sydney Morning Herald, the hard-hitter said, “I think there’s a huge desire from everyone around the country to be a part of that 15-man squad to go to India. To have the opportunity to win a world title is nothing to sneeze at. It’s a title that has eluded Australia for a long time now. I know everyone in the group; myself, the coach and all the players that have been around the T20 side in Australia are desperate to play well over there. It just comes down to getting it all right on the day. We know T20 is a game where one guy, one over here or there can be the difference in a game.” READ: Aaron Finch: Joel Paris, Scott Boland, Kane Richardson skillful bowlers

Talking about the eagerness among the players to be a part of the mega event, Finch said, “Everyone probably has one eye on it a little bit, especially the guys in the Big Bash who are still there impressing with their skills.”

Australia is one of the two nations who first played with the pink ball. The newly introduced concept has already grabbed attentions of cricket enthusiasts from around the world and the Aussie opener opined that usage of pink balls can make the game a bit more interesting.

“I must say growing up watching cricket and even now you see a chase of 200 on a wicket that has a bit in it – they do tend to be exciting games. I certainly don’t want to see the wickets juiced up but there is an argument for it (pink balls). But I haven’t thought about pink balls too much – and at the end of the day people still want to see runs. And so do I,” said the cricketer.
