Australian limited over format skipper, Aaron Finch is excited to play against England in English conditions but he will miss the banter from English crowd. He, however, stressed on the fact that the absence of a crowd doesn’t mean that they will lack intensity.
The Australian team has already arrived in England to play three T20 matches and three-match ODI series, scheduled from September 4th to 16th. Recently, Australian cricketers have faced a huge backlash from the English crowd, especially after David Warner and Steve Smith ball-tampering scandal.
It will also be the first series for Australia amid COVID-19 pandemic as they have not played any match from March 2020 onwards.
“It’s always good to have crowd to entertain and the banter that comes from particularly English crowds is pretty special” Finch told reporters in a conference call on Wednesday.
“Do they get over the top sometimes? Maybe, yeah. It’s all great thing to be part of especially if you beat England over here“.
The credit should be given to England and Wales Cricket Board that under extreme conditions they hosted three different teams which include the list like West Indies, Pakistan and Ireland.
Some of the Australian and England cricketers after completing the series on 16th September will visit UAE to join their respective franchises in order to play the 13th edition of IPL 2020.
