As the reigning world champion in one-day cricket, England is playing with a big target on its back during this four-year cycle to the next World Cup.

Aaron Finch knows exactly how that feels.

The opener was a member of the Australia side that won the 2015 Cricket World Cup on home soil. The line-up immediately broke up — Michael Clarke, Brad Haddin and Mitchell Johnson never played another ODI, and Shane Watson just three more — and Australia was soon ousted as No. 1 in the world by a rampant England.

So, does Finch sees England showing some regression and struggling to stay at the top of the ODI game? Not at all.

“England is still going to be a great side for a while,” the Australia white-ball captain said on Thursday, on the eve of the first ODI between England and his team since last year’s World Cup.
