Australian cricket captain Aaron Finch on Monday (March 11) said that they were optimistic of winning a one-day series in India after a long time.

The five-match series between the two sides is currently tied at 2-2 after Australia chased down a steep total of 359 to stay alive in the series. Australia’s last series win in the 50-over format in India came in 2009.

The team was invited for a special evening in New Delhi by the Australian High Commission in India. Finch added that there is never a dull moment when they are playing with India as there is always “a lot of passion, a lot of fierce competitiveness between the two countries”.

The team also interacted with veteran Indian bowler, Bishan Singh Bedi, who was a part of the famous Indian spin quartet.

The two teams will play the series-deciding one-day international match in New Delhi on Wednesday (March 13). If Finch’s men win the New Delhi ODI, they’ll become first Australian side win a five-match series after trailing 0-2.
