David Warner calls to CA with security fears, Finch confident about measures
Australia’s limited over captain Aaron Finch assured that every measure has been put in order to provide protection to disgraced stars Steven Smith and David Warner during their stay in England to play ICC World Cup 2019.
Since long, concerns have been there that the pair could be the receiving ends of crowd taunts in England during their lengthy stay in the country which includes Ashes right after the world cup.
Daily Mirror, on Thursday, reported Warner’s manager had sought security assurances from Cricket Australia, with the batsman’s wife wanting to give birth to their third child in Britain.
Warner and Smith are representing Australia for the first time since being banned for playing major role in the sandpaper scandal during a Test match against South Africa in March 2018.
Meanwhile Finch admitted that there will always be issues that Aussie cricketers have to deal with in England, but has no concerns over individuals.
“Once the World Cup gets underway and we get into the tournament and the game against England and further into the Ashes there is no doubt the crowds will play a part,”
he said as quoted by Independent UK.
“That’s expected no matter where you go in the world, personally and as an organisation, we don’t have things in place for that,” Finch said.
The former captain Steven Smith and his deputy David Warner had been in supreme touch both in international and domestic cricket for Australia before suddenly fallen from the stars agitating the ball condition to take advantages during the Test match against South Africa.
Finch said, “Since they’ve come back into the squad and the set-up in the last couple of weeks, they’ve been fantastic and contributed as much as they can. Their morale has been unbelievable and the input has been fantastic.
“They’re very important and the runs they have been making in the lead up to this tournament has been impressive.”
