The Australian all-rounder batted down the order, but was visibly hampered by the ankle problem and had to be helped from the field after losing his wicket first ball, with RCB triumphing by 10 runs. "His composure under pressure was fantastic, he played his natural game and stuck to his guns, that was incredible to see", Finch answered to WION's query during a media interaction on Wednesday. "It is just going to be a case of adjusting as quickly as possible". Finch was wary of the dew and tiring tracks in the second half of the tournament, but backed the Royal Challengers to find a way past them. You can't set up one particular style of play. "You got to be flexible for every match". Leggie Yuzvendra Chahal triggered the collapse when he bamboozled Johny Bairstow on 61 in the 15th over of the match. At the start of the innings, he was obviously a little bit nervous but he played his natural game and the way he structured his game and plans, the way he carried himself, it was really impressive. He can play a number of roles. He has got a lot of talent, lot of skill.

"(At the same time), it's about helping each other as much as we can", he said of a non-designated leadership role at RCB. "Having quite a few senior players there, who have played a lot more global cricket and IPL, it's just about helping each other. He also said that it is nice to play alongside Kohli and not against him", said Finch. "I was really looking forward to playing at the Chinnaswamy, but it is what it is", he philosophized.

Regardless, the CDC's reversal could confuse people - and hamper mitigation efforts that could be put in place. Airborne particles are too small to see, and can accumulate over time in poorly ventilated areas.

"I love spending time in Bangalore, it's my favourite city. But just to be able to play the game and not captain for a few games feels nice". "Everyone has a huge amount of respect for them", said the Australian cricketer. "A lot of courage from him to walk out there and try his best, but it was unfortunate tonight", said Warner in a post-match presentation.
