Finch, who has not registered a half-century in his previous four appearances for Australia, was involved in a whopping 193-run partnership for the opening wicket with centurion <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/usman-khawaja/">Usman Khawaja</a> (104) as the visitors posted 313/5 in their first innings.

To get 300 on that wicket was very good. It was nice and especially in these conditions, Finch said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

I have been working really hard and have always had the faith I would get runs. Usman played a fantastic knock, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/jhye-richardson/">Jhye Richardson</a> was also impressive with the ball, the skipper explained.

Specially against a very good Indian side, it was nice to get that win. The bowlers bowled beautifully. We weren't quite sure what a good score is, Finchy started well and the lower-order did a good job take us over 300. My highest score was 98, so it was nice to get those extra two runs today, he said.
