“It’s great for both teams to qualify for the final. They’ve probably been the two benchmark Test teams for a while, both home and away. So that’s been really impressive.

The final is going to be really exciting. Both teams look strong on paper. We will witness an exciting match. Both are well aware of the English conditions,” Finch stated.
Rohit Sharma’s Group India retained the Border-Gavaskar trophy in March earlier this 12 months.
The tracks of Nagpur and Delhi, the venues for the primary two Checks of the four-match sequence between the 2 groups, had been rated “average” by match referee Andy Pycroft.

The Indore Check ended halfway by means of the primary session of the third day with Australia successful by 9 wickets. Australia spinner Nathan Lyon bagged the Man of the Match award for taking 11 wickets within the match.
Ought to the house group at all times get the advantage of tracks of their alternative?

If it deteriorates from the rough and everything and becomes a real challenge that’s okay but maybe not two-day Test matches. If they go three days, that’s okay.”
“But we saw at the GABA, the curator got it wrong. He said he got it wrong. So, it’s a fine line in curating as well. But the home team definitely should make tracks that suit their strengths,” Finch signed off.
