“They (SRH) were getting lucky in the powerplay first and they needed those sixes and Travis Head was the difference there.
“He started well, his intention was to rotate the ball and then he took a bold step of putting Klaasen at No. 3 and said that we need to step up, we have a deep batting line-up and we need to attack the bowlers. Going to install.” The sword is here,” Finch said.
The aggressive playing style displayed by these batsmen has brought about significant changes in the team's strategies and contributed to exciting matches and impressive wins, such as SRH's recent 25-run win.
Finch observed that IPL teams have begun to adjust their tactics by promoting powerful strikers like Klaasen in the batting order. These players demonstrate a fearless approach to the game.
“Many times teams think that Klaasen has so much strength on the backend, let's stop him. Like (RCB's) Glenn Maxwell, you don't want to expose him right now because if he gets out, we'll have to rebuild. Teams don't think like that anymore.
“(SRH coach) Dan Vettori has talked about it, play aggressively, play fearlessly and if it doesn't go right then face the consequences. If it goes right, you won't lose.”
Dinesh Karthik once again underlined his usefulness by scoring 83 runs in 35 balls at a strike rate of 237. Finch said that given his over two decades of experience in the game, the ability to hit the ball comes naturally to Karthik.
“Well, once you have 20-25 years of experience, and you have the same number of balls that you have played in your entire career since the age of five, you don't lose the ability to bat.
“So, I think, it works in their favor because they train specifically for the role they play for their team. They don't overtrain, they train to improve their skills.” They're not trying to improve or they're not trying to improve anymore, they just train specifically,” Finch said.
The Victorian cricketer said players like Karthik are examples for others preparing to be specific about their roles.
“This should be a lesson to players around the world, that you have to be really specific about your preparation and how you do it.
“You can hit as many balls as you want, if you come in the middle with a bad mind or are not fresh, no matter how well you are playing, it will be difficult for you.”
