Adam Finch looks to make the most of the Royal London Cup opportunity

Rapids speed pitcher Adam Finch is looking to make the most of his white ball opportunity after a career-best performance.

Finch scored his fourth consecutive Royal London Cup appearance this summer with numbers 3-54 as Worcestershire fell to Derbyshire at New Road on Sunday.

However, the 21-year-old has only made six T20 and 11 A-list appearances in his career and so hopes to make the most of any experience he gains.

“I’m still learning, I’m still pretty fresh when it comes to white-ball cricket, so I just try to take every opportunity I can to learn,” he said.

“I talk to Alan (Richardson), see what he has for me, and every experience is truly a new experience.

“I haven’t played a lot of games, so it’s about keeping trying to learn, keeping trying to build on things.

“It was nice to have an opportunity, and I’m really grateful to have the chance to play. A lot of people would do anything to do what we do for a profession.

On Sunday, Finch fired in-form Derbyshire captain Shan Masood and Brooke Guest in the same innings.

Finch had Masood catch behind an extra bounce ball to end a 137 stand with Luis Reece, then Guest went to snag his second delivery and was caught square leg deep.

Then in the penultimate he claimed the wicket of Alex Hughes.

With the bat, he hit his highest List A score of 24 in a 61 partnership with Century Maker and Rapids captain Jake Libby.

On recent Royal London Cup results, Finch said: “We try to do the right things and try to do our best.

“All we can do is keep trying to improve, do the right things and keep learning in these kinds of situations.

“We’re still a pretty fresh group, there’s not a lot of white ball cricket being played among us, so keep learning, keep developing and keep trying to win those situations in the future.”
