‘If I can help take some pressure off Virat Kohli then I will do everything’: RCB’s Aaron Finch all ready for IPL 2020
Australia’s limited-overs skipper Aaron Finch, when talking about the prospect of playing under the leadership of Virat Kohli for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 said, “I know how competitive and driven he is”.
The IPL 2020 will be played in the UAE from September 19-November 10 and the tournament will run for 53 days.
In the players’ auction which was conducted in December 2019, RCB managed to bag key players like Finch, Chris Morris, Dale Steyn, Joshua Philippe, and Isuru Udana. Addition of Finch into the side will now bolster RCB’s batting which already comprises of Kohli and AB de Villiers.
In an interaction, Finch talked about playing alongside Kohli, the role of Justin Langer on his leadership, and what makes Kohli and Steve Smith stand out as leading batsmen in the world currently.
“I can’t wait to join up with RCB. To get the opportunity to play for a franchise that has some of the greatest players in the world is going to be fun. It would have been amazing to play in front of the home crowd at Chinnaswamy but representing the franchise in UAE will still mean a huge amount to me,” Finch told reporters.
