For any cricketer to first find a base in international cricket, it is important to reach that certain level of comfort at which the player can relax. For Australian batsmen Aaron Finch, the moment came when he smashed Steven Finn's first ball over suqare leg for six at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. That incident put Finch in a relaxed mood as he simply got better at his game.
