Finch backs out-of-form David Warner ahead of SA match
 
Abu Dhabi, Australia captain Aaron Finch is expected to open the batting alongside David Warner in Abu Dhabi, showing that he backs him to rediscover his form, coming into the ICC Men's World Cup here.

"I am backing Dave's ability. I am backing his judgment. If you look at his World Cup history, he is just bloody good. Would he have liked more runs? Absolutely. Everyone would like more runs all the time. He is one of the greatest players that Australia has ever produced, and I have no doubts that come Game 1 he will be up and firing and ready to go," he told ICC here.

The Baggy Greens are prepared to face South Africa in their first Super 12s game Saturday and push their bid to win the elusive ICC trophy.

Warner was dropped by Sunrisers Hyderabad in the second half of the IPL and was warming the benches in the dugouts for the remaining eight games.

Finch said his knee is feeling great and playing the first two warm up games against New Zealand and India was crucial.

Everyone is in a pretty good space and are excited to kick it off tomorrow, he said.

Finch said four specialist bowlers will be fielded against the Proteas and rely on allrounders like Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis and Mitchell Marsh to bowl in the middle overs.

"Finch said the team has a lot of confidence in Maxwell, Stoinis, and Marsh to be able to bowl in four overs as well," he said.

The Australian opener expects them to do a good job as he feels the wickets here will help their sort of bowling.

South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma said there are a bit of butterflies, but the side wants to start off well against Australia in the Group 1 at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup.

"I must be honest, there is a bit of anxiety amongst the guys, there are a bit of butterflies, and I think that's something that is expected," he said.

"Tomorrow being an opener for us, it is obviously a big game. We want to start off well. We want to hit the ground off running and start to get that momentum rolling in our favour. But the guys, I believe, are in a good space," Bavuma added.

He said it is always good to start off well because there are only five games in the group stages and one does not really have time to be behind the balls.

Bavuma said he does not expect the match against Australia anything different because the clashes against them have always been full of fire.
