Finch holds firm after Warner and Smith dismissed early in Melbourne – Wiltshire Times

He reached his half-century in just 32 balls, taking on the Ashes-winning pace duo of Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins with conspicuous success, and had 67no in England’s 108 for two after 15 overs.

Marcus Stoinis gave the hosts some late impetus with a rapid 60, but Roy began to reclaim the momentum for his side with some dashing strokeplay to kick-off the chase.
