Aaron Finch, the captain of Australia, described his performance as “strange” and “bad” after making 31 off 42 balls in his team’s seven-wicket victory over Sri Lanka in the T20 World Cup on Tuesday.

After slogging to 31 off 42 balls in his team’s seven-wicket victory over Sri Lanka in the T20 World Cup on Tuesday, Australia’s captain Aaron Finch described his performance as “strange” and “bad.” Marcus Stoinis scored the fastest fifty by an Australian batsman to help his team reach the mark of 158 in 16.3 overs even though Finch was unable to escape the constraints. Stoinis achieved his half-century in just 17 deliveries and then sped to an unbeatable 59 in just 18 balls. Finch, meanwhile, who often likes to strike out, appeared to be hitting on a different pitch.

“really content (with the result). My performance was terrible. I was unable to hit the ball “At the presenting ceremony, Finch stated.

After suffering a humiliating loss to New Zealand in their opener, the defending champions Australia entered the contest.

“We used a good approach with the bat. It was crucial to prepare for the back end of the inning because it was seaming a long way there.

Although it would have been wonderful to get going sooner to make the chase a little easier, overall, I thought my ball handling was quite clinical. After Australia sent them in, Charith Asalanka’s 38 not out off 25 balls enabled Sri Lanka put up a valiant 157 for six.

Sri Lanka put up a brave fight before being crushed by Stoinis’s force.

When asked about the powerplay, Finch responded, “It was challenging for them to bowl the length. It’s difficult to stand and deliver on such a wide space. Nice to have both points.” The Australian skipper commented on Stoinis’ mistake by saying, “It was quite an exceptional inning. The most important thing is to declare that intention. In T20 cricket, having that presence of the crease when you come out to bat is half the battle won.

“It’s a good mix when you have the skill he has,” Stoinis admitted that he was first anxious about performing in front of his family.

“Being at home in Perth with so many family members and friends present made me incredibly apprehensive today, but I’m glad we managed to put on a little bit of a clinic.

“I had some time off with this side strain, which was great for my mental state, but things are looking well so far. I felt great “said Stoinis.

Dasun Shanaka, the captain of Sri Lanka, believed his pacers weren’t fully fit.

“I believe that the fast bowlers in particular lack adequate preparation. They are returning from injury, thus I believe that is why they get hurt so frequently.

“With the new ball, it was incredibly difficult. It’s too difficult to start. With the new ball, even Finch had trouble. They played pretty well in the latter half, “said Shanaka.
