IPL 2021: Aaron Finch reacts after going unsold in the IPL 2021 Auction.
IPL 2021: The Australian limited over skipper and former RCB player, Aaron Finch is not surprised with the IPL 2021 Auction and said going unsold in the IPL auction was not unexpected for him. Aaron Finch in IPL 2020 played for Virat Kohli led RCB where he scored 268 runs in 12 games. Finch was released by RCB last month when the franchises had to provide the list of retained players and he went unsold in the recent IPL 2021 Auction.
“It would be good to keep playing the game. IPL is a great tournament with the world-class competition but going unsold was not unexpected for me. 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.
No franchise was interested in the services of the Australian opening batsman in the Auction on 18th February at Chennai.
Australia will be taking on New Zealand in the five games T20I series starting on Monday. The opener of the series will be played at Hagley Oval in Christchurch. Finch said he is working on his technical part.
“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 have talked a lot and worked quite a bit with Andrew McDonald, who has been my problem solver. Whenever I had some sort of issues or things doesn’t go right, I talk with him and he comes out with the solution pretty quick. It is really good to work on your body and investing in you.”
