Aaron Finch Picks Up A Major Injury Before The T20 World Cup
T20 World Cup Update- The Australian team was on a tour of the Caribbean, though some of their players were missing. Aaron Finch was part of the squad and was leading from the front. However, things have gone south for the Aussie skipper. The Aussie opener has now picked up a serious injury. He has been ruled out of the current series and the upcoming one against Bangladesh.
This comes as a huge blow to the Aussie side. They have been trying to find some form, with some of their key players not part of the tour. Though they have not really been able to do so, till now, things were looking a bit better. The team is currently tied at 1-1 with the West Indies and will play the final ODI of a three-match series, which will be a decider.
Finch recently suffered a major injury to his right knee. That was in the lead-up to the T20I series against the West Indies. Further, he aggravated it during the final match last Friday. The opener has been out of action since. His form has not been the best in recent times either.
The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 in October-November will be the priority. The player and the fans will be hoping that he can recover in time. The Aussie skipper will now return home for a 14-day quarantine, prior to most likely undergoing surgery.
Finch said, “I am extremely disappointed to be heading home. This was considered the best course of action rather than travelling to Bangladesh. Not being able to play and losing that recovery time. I will have the surgery if required and start the recovery process ahead of the T20 World Cup.”
This will be a huge blow to the Australian side. They are already without a few of their big names at present that opted to take a break. With that being said, things could go from bad to worse for them if the injury is more severe than it seems. Aaron Finch could miss the T20 World Cup, though a final verdict will be given in the upcoming weeks.
