I’m Making Sure That We Do Literally Everything We Can With Regards To The Protocols To Keep The Global Game Going: Aaron Finch

Australian skipper Aaron Finch wants the players to make sure they don’t break the protocols because a lot of hardwork by many people has made it possible for cricket to restart in this pandemic hit situation.

What’s important to remember is we are in a position to help continue the global game, and there should be no more motivation than that to do everything right. I’ve been very strong with the guys in the last couple of weeks about making sure that we do literally everything we can with regards to the protocols to keep the global game going,” Aaron Finch told cricket.com.au

“Because at the end of the day, if that fails then we are all out of jobs and the game is not in a healthy state, which we can’t afford to have.

“There’s been so much time and effort put in by thousands of people to give us the opportunity to play international cricket again, and even us leaving Australia, leaving Victoria, is a big process. The people who’ve worked their backside off over the last couple of months to allow it to happen in Australia, in the UK, in India, South Africa, the UAE, wherever it is, thousands of people are doing an unbelievable amount of work to get the game up and running again,” he added.

“I was scared,” he admitted. “I kept wondering if my skills would remain the same when I returned to the sport. I had nightmares. A couple of times I woke up in the middle of the night because I dreamt I had forgotten how to pick the line and length. It scared the hell out of me. To be honest, when I went back to play the first session, it was horrible because I was rusty.”
