“It’s unbelievable. The resilience and the fight that we showed was incredible. We’ve had our backs against the wall for a while now, but I’m really proud of the group for coming back,” said Finch.

“It’s important to have a balanced side. We need a good balance of attack and defence. You need good batsmanship on these wickets against these really talented guys like Kuldeep (Yadav), (Yuzvendra) Chahal and Jaddu (Ravindra Jadeja),” added Finch. (ALSO READ: Series win in India gives us great confidence going into the World Cup: Peter Handscomb)

“Like I said, people have written us off for quite a while now, but the team that we have can win us the series, and they can win us the World Cup. It’s about believing in ourselves and sticking to our gameplan. It was a great series all round even though India beat us resoundingly in Nagpur,” concluded Finch.
