Aaron Finch is a one-day cricket Superman whose four-day persona is a very meek Clark Kent.
The big-hitting Victorian batsman admits he has been looking for answers ahead of the Sheffield Shield match against South Australia beginning on Friday at the MCG.
Last week's away matches against NSW emphasised the difficulty Finch has transferring between the two forms of the game.
He made only eight at No.3 in the first innings of the Shield match, but on Sunday he opened in the one-dayer and thrashed 140 from 121 balls.
Finch leads the domestic limited-overs averages after five matches with 451 runs at 112.75.
But in three Shield games he has just 43 runs at 10.75.
The right-hander describes it as a mental challenge.
"In one-day cricket, opening the batting is a little bit easier, as opposed to batting at three in four-day cricket," he said.
"You walk out and if you want to hit one over the fence, you have a crack at it.
"If it doesn't come off, you walk off and shake your head and there's not too many repercussions.
"But in four-day cricket, if I do that Shippy (Victorian coach Greg Shipperd) might string me up."
Finch said it was frustrating to be playing so well in one-dayers, but somehow have his form desert him once he changes from his coloured uniform into whites.
"It's a mental challenge more than anything ... it's worn me down a little bit in the past, but I've been working hard on my game and speaking to the right people," he said.
"Hopefully it can translate into some (Shield) runs.
"I feel like my technique is in pretty good order.
"It's definitely not luck - that gets thrown around pretty loosely.
"It's obviously a mental thing, it's possibly technique.
"It's a confidence thing and after a while it does take a little bit to believe in yourself in four-day cricket."
Victoria are second on the Shield table behind Queensland, while SA are last.
The Redbacks go into the match without Dan Christian, who is serving a one-match team suspension for damaging dressing rooms at three grounds after his dismissals.
