#IndiaInAustralia: Skipper Aaron Finch takes the blame for series loss
Team India defeated Australia 2-1 to seal their first ever bilateral ODI series at their own backyard. After losing the first ODI at the SCG, Virat Kohli's side fought back to notch crucial wins in Adelaide and Melbourne. Australian skipper Aaron Finch had a lean series and failed with the bat. Finch considered himself as the weak link of the side.
Finch got scores of six, six and fourteen in the three ODIs. "I was probably the weak link in that, which is disappointing for me as the captain of the side. I think this time will be really good to be able to work on my game with some more time in the schedule," said the Aussie skipper.
Australia will take heart from their batting performance in the middle overs. Players like Shaun Marsh and Peter Handscomb stood out and provided a fight. Finch acknowledged the same and said that there was some real improvement in the side's batting. "We've seen some real improvement in the way we've batted in the last three ODIs in particular."
Finch was dismissed by Bhuvneshwar Kumar on three successive occasions in the ODI series. Prior to that, the right-handed batsman also struggled in the Tests. Australia need Finch to focus and get back to business, especially with the World Cup coming up next.
