'If it's at the top, I think it's about playing your natural game, if it's in the middle there'll obviously be times you come in against a lot of spin and the ball's reversing,' Aaron Finch said
Sydney: Australia’s Aaron Finch has vowed to play his “natural game” if he gets a chance to open the batting in Test cricket.
The right-handed Finch was recently called up to the Australian Test squad to face Pakistan in a two-match series and he is likely to make his debut in the five-day format. The first Test starts in Dubai from October 7 and the second is in Abu Dhabi from October 16.
“Being aggressive has made me reasonably successful in international cricket in the two shorter formats so I suppose it depends where in the order they see me fitting in if there is a spot for me in the XI," Finch said on Monday.
“If it's at the top, I think it's about playing your natural game, if it's in the middle there'll obviously be times you come in against a lot of spin and the ball's reversing,” the 31-year-old, who has represented Australia in 93 ODIs and 42 T20Is, added.
Finch said he will discuss about his batting plans with coach Justin Langer and captain Tim Paine.
"So I'll sit down with the coach and captain over the next week or so and start nutting out some plans. After 10 or 12 years you build up a game plan that works well for you and it's not about going right away from that because it's Test cricket or playing in the sub-continent. I think it's about just changing your mindset slightly,” Finch said.
