I think we played some good cricket in Zimbabwe and before that in the tri-series against New Zealand and England last year.

The T20 Internationals will be followed by a four-Test series and three ODIs.advertisementAlso read – Steve Smith and David Warner to serve out bans in full: Cricket Australia”T20s are fast-paced short games obviously. At times it can take one bit of brilliance with bat or ball, or even in the field, and it can change the dynamics of the match or even the whole series.”So it is a great advantage to be able to start off against India in this format. They have been so dominant in this format that people forget where they are playing at times,” he added.Also read – India name playing XI for 1st T20I vs Australia, Rishabh Pant to keep wicketsAustralia fielded an all-pace attack in their one-off T20I against South Africa on Saturday.

Indian batsmen have been here before, so there isn’t an element of surprise with the amount of cricket being played nowadays. But we will still look to use it to our advantage. The boundaries are bigger here than in India, and it could alter strategies.Also read – No bad blood with Virat Kohli, declares Australia pacer Mitchell Starc”You cannot hit as many sixes to influence the game as soon as you come to the crease, and you might have to steal doubles instead. I think the team that deals with it the better will win this series,” Finch said.When asked about countering Virat Kohli and his pre-tour statement about not feeling the need to be aggressive anymore, he replied, “Virat plays the game that gets the best out of himself, and I think that at times, for him that’s about being verbal for his team, and pumping them up and being right in the contest. He loves that.”He plays the same way for everyone, whether for India or in the IPL. So, the verbal won’t change whatsoever I think what he was referring to was his aggression, but ‘verbal’ is encouragement for teammates. It’s not abuse or anything like that.(With inputs from PTI)Also watch –last_img read more
