Finch: Virat ruthless
Australia limited-overs captain Aaron Finch wants the home team players to strike a “fine balance” when they confront Virat Kohli in the opening Test as he believes, if provoked too much, the India skipper can be “ruthless” against his opponents.
The last time the two teams faced off in 2018-19, the Test series saw some heated exchanges between the two captains — Kohli and Tim Paine.
“I think there will be times when things boil over and when you have got strong characters on either teams, that’s going to come to a head at some point,” Finch was quoted as saying by The Sydney Morning Herald.
“But there is a fine balance there, isn’t it? You don’t want him (Kohli) to get up and about in the contest. When he does, he can be ruthless,” said Finch, who has played under Kohli in the IPL.
