Birmingham: Having won the toss and batted first, the last thing Australia would have wanted was a top-order collapse against hosts England in the 2019 World Cup semi-final encounter at the Edgbaston Cricket Stadium. But that is exactly what happened and skipper Aaron Finch made no bones about the fact that the match was lost there.”Definitely in the first 10 overs of the game. We know they were going to come really aggressive at us with the bat, so we had to be aggressive with the ball, we had to take or create ten chances and take them as well. So, especially against England, it wasn’t going to be a game that peters out into the 47th, 48th over. It was going to be ultra-aggressive and they got on top of us early with the bat.”But the damage was really done with the ball. That sets you back. That forced us to rebuild for such a long time and start to drag some momentum back and then, like I said, you lose a couple of quick wickets again, new batters starting, it is always tough against really good leg-spin and good quicks as well. So, all in all, we were totally outplayed to be honest all throughout the day, so you look back at that and you can analyse each ten overs, but just outplayed,” he said.But Finch praised the duo of Steve Smith and Alex Carey for putting up a 100-run partnership after the initial setback. He felt that the duo gave the bowlers something to play with.”If it were not for our middle-order today, we would have been in real trouble. We still managed to get 230-odd. I think the way that Steve and Alex formed that partnership and managed to really drag us back into the game after a tough start was really important. I think the way that they managed to soak up pressure and then slowly start to transfer a bit more pressure back on to England before we lost our way again. It was a bit of a frantic start, three-fer in the powerplay and a good partnership and a couple of quick wickets again which always sets you back a little bit.”Yes, I think a lot of teams have been in a similar boat. I think most of the time opening the batting has been the easiest place, so not to be today for myself and Dave (Warner) and Pete (Handscomb) at no. four. It was tough conditions at the start. England bowled very well. We just needed to find a way through that period to really set a platform for the middle overs,” he pointed.Asked if there were talks about Glenn Maxwell and his performance, Finch said: “I thought he started off really well and got us into some really good positions, even the game against India, where he started to build some real momentum. Again, probably a few starts here and there instead of what he has done in the past where went on and got the really match-winning contribution.”But with the ball, I know he didn’t get any wickets but he was reasonably economical when and did that in some really tough places, so I know that he’s disappointed. International cricket is very hard (smiling).”You weigh up every possible 11, whatever you think’s the strongest 11 to win the game, matching up to England, also what is in your best interests in terms of your strengths and stuff like that, so you put dozens of teams up, dozens of combinations and that happens every game, you throw enough stuff in the air, but we were really confident to back Maxxy (Maxwell) in to the game.Also Read: It’s More Than Just Wins and Losses in Leadership Role: Aaron Finch
“You just can’t fall into that trap because bad games will turn really bad really quickly if you don’t learn to negate that risk,” Rosen said.“I’ve been battling that my whole career. I have to find that balance of knowing when I can push the edge, and when to just take the sack and live to play another down.” Flores will have to make the decision of whether to start Rosen or veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick at the beginning of the regular season. The journeyman seems to have the upper hand, but if Rosen can “play smarter” he might impress Flores enough to earn the job.“At some point as a quarterback, you have to take a sack. That’s the play,” Flores said of a specific Rosen play, via the South Flordia Sun Sentinel. “But the guy has a little bit of a gunslinger mentality and likes to let it rip. Obviously, that was a nice one to Preston (Williams), but I think we want to play smarter than that in that situation. Not just let the ball go like we did.” Related News Josh Rosen got a lot of reps in during his Dolphins debut Thursday.The second-year quarterback completed 13 of his 20 passes for 191 yards in a 34-27 win over the Falcons. He wasn’t able to find the end zone and threw one interception while taking two sacks. But for coach Brian Flores, who was also making his debut as the play-caller for Miami, Rosen’s sack total should have been three. Kenny Stills gets death threats but stands by criticism of Dolphins owner over President Trump event The play in question resulted in a Dolphins first down. Rosen escaped the grip of a defender and found wide receiver Preston Williams for a 16-yard pass completion. It was good for the team at the time, but even Rosen admitted after the game it might not have been the best decision.“It may have been a little dicey,” he said. “But I probably should’ve been smarter with that even though this one worked out.”Rosen will likely get the starting nod in the second preseason game while Flores continues to weigh his options. It will give the young quarterback a chance to find the right balance.
