WTC Final 2023: Virat Kohli or Steve Smith – Who will have bigger impact? Aaron Finch gives his verdict


Finch compared the impacts of batting maestros Virat Kohli and Steve Smith, emphasising the significance of dismissing them early in order to gain an advantage. Expressing his personal preference for Smith’s outstanding record, Finch anticipated an enthralling contest between the two dynamic players.

“Both batting at number four, so the key is to try and get them as early as possible, early wickets to expose them to the brand new ball will be absolutely key. I will always side with Steve Smith, I think his record is outstanding, but it will be a very good contest,” Finch told Star Sports.

Further, Finch discussed the highly anticipated rivalry between India and Australia, emphasising the intense competition that brings out the best in both teams. Reflecting on recent series results, Finch acknowledged India’s success against Australia in the past three encounters, highlighting the teams’ determination to excel regardless of the playing venue, be it home, away, or in neutral territory.

Speaking exclusively to Star Sports, former Australia captain Aaron Finch spoke on how India versus Australia is a spectacle to behold, he said “I think the rivalry is held in such high regard in both countries, that I think it brings out the best in both teams.”

“Obviously, India has had the better of Australia in the last three series I think, so both teams will rise to the occasion no matter where it’s played, at home or away or this time at neutral territory. It’s just a must watch thing,” he added.

The WTC final between India and Australia will kick start from June 7 at The Oval in London. A reserve day has also been kept for the all-important clash which will see a new Test champion at the end of it.
