Between the mid-inning presentation, Aaron Finch said,
“It would have been nice to go on, disappointed to get out immediately after the hundred. Think that’s a pretty good score. If we bowl in the right areas, it’ll be tough work. He (Warner) played nicely. It wasn’t easy; the ball was seaming. We could have got a few more runs, but we have to defend it regardless. On a wicket like this, to able to squeeze and build a pressure – that’ll be our target as well; try and take early wickets and put pressure on the middle order. If you get the ball in the right areas, there’s enough there. The wicket’s been slow. Absolutely (when asked if length’s the key). (Got enough on the board?) Hope so.”
