Fans will miss the taunts in England: Captain Finch

Australia will not have to face the taunts of England fans in the upcoming series of limited overs, as spectators are not allowed to come to the stadium due to the Corona virus, but guest team captain Aaron Finch said he would miss it . The Australian team has reached England for this tour. Australia and England cricketers will leave for United Arab Emirates (UAE) after the series and take part in the Indian Premier League.

Finch made his statement for the first time after the Australian team arrived in England this week, saying, “The presence of the audience is always good to entertain and the speeches they make, especially the England audience, are special.” Finch said during the video call, ‘Do they cross the limit? Sometimes, maybe. But I think it’s good to be a part of it especially when you beat England there. This time things will be different, but I do not think it will reduce the passion of the match.

Finch has watched all the matches while staying at home

Batsmen Steve Smith and David Warner faced a hooting of England spectators during the Ashes series and Cricket World Cup last year after being involved in a ball tampering episode in South Africa in 2018. These two are also part of the Australian team this time, which is the first national sports team to go out of the country after the onset of the global epidemic. Before Australia, teams from the West Indies, Ireland and Pakistan have toured England for international matches and Finch said that he was watching the match at home.

‘The situation will be different from not having an audience’

He said, ‘Of course the situation is a bit different from not having an audience, but as a cricketer I feel that we don’t play in front of a much larger audience than our 95 percent. So I think we are used to it. ‘ Australia have not played a match since 13 March when the one-day international series against New Zealand was canceled. In England, the team will play a series of three ODIs and as many T20 Internationals in the Bio Secure Environment. Australia’s 21-member team will play their 50-over match on Friday, forming their own two teams and will also play four T20 practice matches before the match against England.
