While Finch was tight-lipped about team selection, opposite number Kane Williamson intimated Tim Seifert would come in for the injured Devon Conway, who has been ruled out with a broken hand which he sustained when he punched his bat in frustration after being dismissed in New Zealand's semi-final victory over England on Wednesday.
"The loss of Devon is a big one," Williamson said. "It's a disappointing and freak thing to happen. He still wants to give as much as he can to the team. He's certainly right behind Tim and Tim is excited at getting involved.
"For us, it's keeping our focus on the task. We know how strong the Australian side is and we are looking forward to that opportunity."
Even though this is the third World Cup finalNew Zealand have reached in the last six years, the perception exists that they are still underdogs, but Williamson is not concerning himself with any labels.
"It doesn't have a lot to do with us, really," he said. "We focus on our cricket. The different tags and what not, that's not really something that we control."
