“In terms of red-ball cricket, I don’t think it’s realistic to play Test cricket again,” Finch was quoted saying cricket.com.au. “Just based on two things: the amount of opportunity to play four-day cricket and force a claim, I think, is going to be really limited; and also the young batters coming through, there are some seriously good players in Australia, especially top-order batters.”
“The talent depth is really, really strong at the moment so I don’t think that’s an opportunity, to be honest,” he said from Australia’s bio-secure base in Derby on Wednesday.
“It’s always a place I’ve loved batting, right from when I first came over as a club player up in York. You play at venues a lot more and you just get more familiar with the place … having big squares here as a batter is always nice because you hit the ball through the field and you get full value for your shots.”
