“Finn Allen at the moment, he’s young, he’s learning, but he’s in a really important position for us at the top of the order and he seems to be at the moment in a one pace, one line hitter. At the moment, it’s failing and maybe Finn”s getting the experience, I mean they have got to stick with him, but he’s not producing enough at the moment,” he stated.
“You look at Rohit Sharma and the way they play, yes they are powerful but they also have the skill in the way they go about executing their plans. I just worry at the moment that Finn’s sort of been thrown into that mix where it’s one pace, batter up, it’s a baseball-style mentality,” he added.
Concerns for New Zealand
As mentioned by Craig Cumming, New Zealand must stick to Finn Allen. It looks unlikely that New Zealand would go back and recall Martin Guptill as the batter doesn’t have promising numbers behind him. The batters must score at least 160 odd runs against India in the upcoming T20I Series to give them a chance.
