Australia’s limited-overs skipper Aaron Finch spilt beans regarding the toughest bowler he faced in both international cricket as well as during net sessions.
Finch has been active on social media, answering queries from his fans via Q&A sessions, using the hashtag ‘AskFinch’.
One of the cricket fans on Twitter asked the Australian about the toughest bowler he faced in the nets as well as at the international level.
Finch named his former colleague Mitchell Johnson as the toughest bowler he had to face during the nets.
Toughest bowler you have faced in International cricket and in the nets ?

Both Finch and Johnson have taken Australia to new heights by winning the 2015 World Cup at home. The two have met on several occasions at the domestic circuit, representing Victoria and Western Australia.
Also, Finch and Johnson often engage in intriguing duels in the Big Bash League whenever the Melbourne Renegades meet Perth Scorchers.
It is a well-renowned fact that net sessions in the Australian team can often turn hostile. In the Amazon Original’s ‘The Test’, the likes of Glenn Maxwell and Shaun Marsh got severely hit while facing Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins during a training session in the 2019 World Cup in England.
Marsh, who was playing his last World Cup, heart-breakingly pulled out of the tournament after getting his arm broken by Cummins, mid-way in the competition.
Johnson has wreaked havoc amongst England and South African team during the 2013 season with his nasty bouncers. Also, Johnson holds the reputation of being one of the most dreaded bowlers Australia have ever produced.
