‘I would be doing all I can to pick Virat Kohli’s brains on batting’- Aaron Finch


Aaron Finch is all set to lead Australia in the three-match T20 series against England, starting from Friday. Following the tour, Finch will fly to Dubai to join RCB in IPL 2020. He will join hands with the likes of Virat Kohli, AB De Villiers to represent RCB this year.

The Australian skipper is looking forward for the opportunity to learn from Kohli on different aspects of the game. He would look to pick Virat’s brain on batting.

Kohli is a great player, has achieved a lot of success in all three formats and performed consistently all around the world in all conditions. So I would be doing all I can to pick his brains on batting. Be it strategy or technique, I would try to take away as much as I can. I am not sure how much technical advice I can offer him but, hopefully, I can give back something to the RCB dressing room as well and contribute to the team’s success.

RCB is one of the most popular teams in the cash-rich league. The franchise, though, hasn’t managed to win a single title in the history of the league. RCB have made some decent buys this year and looks quite balanced as far as the balance of the team is concerned. The batting unit consists of the top players such as Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. Looking at the conditions in UAE, the franchise is also aided with decent spinners such as Moeen Ali, Adam Zampa and Yuzvendra Chahal.


Retained: Virat Kohli, Moeen Ali, Yuzvendra Chahal, AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Pawan Negi, Umesh Yadav, Gurkeerat Mann, Devdutt Padikkal, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Navdeep Saini, Aaron Finch, Chris Morris, Joshua Philippe, Adam Zampa, Pavan Deshpande, Dale Steyn, Shahbaz Ahamad, Isuru Udana.
