International tournaments are a golden opportunity for all players in the game. These tournaments allow all players to represent their country on a global scale. Not all players get a chance to be a part of the international squad, and this should be taken with utmost seriousness. Especially in a competitive sport like cricket, where each team has excellent players.
One may say that such tournaments come once in a couple of years, but the base of the team needs to be formed from the start. A weak foundation can cause the entire team to struggle in the tournament.
This is the sole reason why the right captain needs to be chosen for the team. A person may be a great player; however, a captain needs to have extraordinary management skills and a good connection with the team. Captains decide the order of the team, batting and bowling line-up, and as well as the approach of the team.
Finch occupies himself in preparation of World Cup 2023
Australia’s limited-overs captain Aaron Finch has been constantly thinking about the game, so much so that he is already plotting a title bid for the 2023 ODI World Cup in India.
This shows the dedication and persistence of a captain must-have. Over 2-3 years have to be given to organize and strategize for the World Cup events.
The T20 World Cup in Australia later this year looks unlikely due to the COVID-19 pandemic while India has the rights for the 2021 edition. India also hosts the 50-over showpiece event in 2023 and Finch feels it is time zero in on a pool for sub-continental conditions.
“I’m a cricket enthusiast, so you are always thinking about it, especially being captain and with what’s coming up with the T20 World Cup, whenever that might be, and there’s a couple of them. I’m looking forward to the 2023 50-over World Cup in India,” Finch states at an interview.
“We are just in the processing of nutting out how we go about winning that, what we’ll need to do down the track to be successful in those three tournaments.”
