Aaron Finch says he'll be looking to make every post a winner as he attempts to use the upcoming Australia A matches against the England Lions to overcome a form slump.
Finch had been in imperious form for Victoria and the Melbourne Renegades during the early stages of the summer, but has struggled since being selected in the Australian one-day international team.
In two ODI matches against Sri Lanka and five against the West Indies, the 26-year-old opener has only managed to score 105 runs at an average of 15, his highest score being just 38 against the Windies in Canberra last week.
However, Finch has the chance to turn it around when he lines up for Australia A in Saturday's one-day clash against the England Lions in Hobart.
"I still feel like I'm hitting the ball well," Finch said on Friday.
"Probably, a little bit of pressure got to me a little bit, it's tough to say.
"I suppose that every time you represent Australia there's a lot more scrutiny so it's something that I was very disappointed with, my own performance."
Having struggled against Sri Lanka in the summer's first two one-day internationals, Finch said he'd felt somewhat nervous in those matches and he was dismissed through some tentative strokes.
But having reverted to his usual aggressive approach in the five-match series against the West Indies, he also struggled.
The Victorian did fall victim to some quality catches by the West Indies at times, especially in the second ODI in Perth, but his aggression also proved his undoing, like in last Sunday's clash when he couldn't resist hurling the bat at a Tino Best bouncer and was caught on the ropes.
Finch, though, believes he can turn it all around, especially if he can work through some flaws in his mental game.
"I felt like my plans and all were in place, that they were good," he said.
"I suppose that when you play against such quality fielding opposition like the West Indies, they're a great fielding side and they take half chances and it's just small things like that, that you probably don't realise how much they can turn a game so quickly.
"I suppose it's attention to detail probably. I've got to go back and reassess, I think my technique's in good order, I feel like I was hitting the ball nicely, it's just a mental thing which I have to work on."
Finch feels he needs to sort out these issues sooner rather than later, especially as he is acutely aware there is only a limited number of ODI clashes ahead of the next World Cup.
"Whoever stands up and takes their opportunity is going to be around the team for a long time," he said.
"I think there's only 37 one-day internationals 'til the next World Cup, so that's not a real long time, so if somebody makes their mark like Adam Voges did, comes back into the side after a couple of years out and gets a hundred and plays beautifully, then you're well on the way to cementing your spot in the team."
