CANBERRA: Australia captain Aaron Finch has assisted under-attack Paceman Mitchell Starc to recover after the left poor was eaten by India’s batsmen in the first two games of the one-day series. Australia sealed the series 2-0 with their 51-run win in Sydney on Sunday, but Starc’s struggles have raised concerns that led to the four-Test series from December. 17 in Adelaide. Starc ended up numbers 0-82 out of nine overs at the Sydney Cricket Ground two days after recording 1-65 in the opener on the same floor he cashed in his first over 20 runs.
Finch said there would be discussion of how Starc could be used ahead of the dead rubber in Canberra on Wednesday, but he was unimpressed with the 30-year-old’s form. « I think he’s fine, » the limited liability skipper told reporters on Tuesday. « He wasn’t at his best and you have to understand that his standards are way higher than what you would expect from most other people because he’s been dominant for the past eight or nine years – especially the white ball- Formats. « There will be some conversation today about what we can do differently, if using it through the innings is a tactical thing. But from my point of view there are definitely no panic wards. ”
Finch said the loss of opening partner David Warner to a groin injury is a blow to Australia and a replacement has yet to be determined. Matthew Wade, previously unused, could be brought in, he said, but the selectors could choose to promote wicketkeeper Alex Carey or Marnus Labuschagne, who battled for four in the second ODI depending on the pitch. « He’s an all-time great in one day, T20 cricket, » Finch said of Warner. « Any team he doesn’t belong to will be a little weaker. « But we have people who can also get involved in this role. « . ”
