Aaron Finch switches hands in nets as injured Warner misses out

Australian skipper Aaron Finch had been seen switching his hands and trying to bat left-handed at the nets in Mohali ahead of the first T-20I against India. This comes amidst his regular opening partner David Warner is set to miss the series with an injury.

Finch had recently announced his retirement from ODI cricket after a string of low scores and poor form. It is most likely that the veteran batsman will also step down as the captain of the T-20I team and retire from the shortest format of the game after the World Cup.

If Finch decides to retire, it might be his last series against India on the subcontinent turf. However, the Aussies who are the defending champions will likely aim to retain the triumph and set their combination right before the World Cup.

In the recent past, Glenn Maxwell and David Warner had also tried to switch hands in nets but that had only been to confuse the opponent’s bowling. Finch will surely come as a right-handed batsman and it will be interesting to find his partner.

Meanwhile, the Australian team management is highly concerned about the team’s preparedness for the T-20 World Cup. Australia has played the least number of T20Is since the conclusion of the previous edition of the World Cup and has only six games in their kitty before the premier championship.

Australia plays against India without Warner, Mitchell Marsh and Mitchell Starc as the trio is injured. They will be fit for their upcoming home series against West Indies. Here is Australia’s squad for the series against India:

Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Tim David, Nathan Ellis, Aaron Finch (c), Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Josh Inglis, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Daniel Sams, Steve Smith, Matthew Wade

Tim David has been the latest X-factor for Australia who will likely pave the way for Australia’s middle-order. Pat Cummins will lead the bowling attack whereas Smith will be reliable in the batting order. India will take on Australia in the first T-20I tomorrow.
