Australia’s batsmen Aaron Finch said that going unsold at the recently concluded IPL 2021 Auction wasn’t unexpected. “It would have been nice to be playing again. It’s a wonderful competition to be a part of but it wasn’t unexpected that I wasn’t picked up, honestly. I’d prefer to be playing cricket, but a little bit of time at home won’t be the worst thing,” Cricket.com.au quoted Finch as saying.
In the last edition of the IPL, Aaron Finch played for RCB & scored 268 runs from 12 matches he has played. Last month the batsman was released from the RCB squad & he also went unsold at the IPL 2021 Player Auction which was held on February 18.
Australia is currently preparing to face New Zealand in a five match T20I series which will start from Monday at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch. Aaron Finch said that he has been working on a few technical things to improve his performance.
“I’ve been working a few technical things; trying to get a little bit less weight on my front foot. At times I can get a little bit flat footed and my feet get planted then I struggle to move again – I have my initial movement then I get a little bit stuck,” he said.
“I’ve talked a lot and worked a fair bit with Andrew McDonald, who I go back to every time things don’t seem quite right and he seems to sort it out pretty quickly. It’s been nice to have a good chunk of training and focusing on a few little technical changes,” Finch added.
