Finch hopes Australia carry momentum in Pakistan series

Sharjah, Thursday: Australian skipper Aaron Finch hopes his team carry the momentum of a series win in India to their five-match series against Pakistan starting in Sharjah from Friday.

The Pakistan series is the last chance for Australia to fill any gapes before they defend their title in the World Cup starting in UK from May 30.

Finch hopes his team keeps improving.

"It is about trying to maintain our momentum that we got in India," said Finch of the 3-2 come from behind win earlier this month -- Australia's first series win in India since 2009.

The win in India -- after six consecutive one-day series defeats -- was a boost for the Australia team who lost two key players -- skipper Steven Smith and opener David Warner -- to bans for ball tampering last year.

The remaining matches will be played in Sharjah (March 24), Abu Dhabi (March 27) and Dubai (March 29 and 31).
