Vibhuti Kakkar, Sydney: Australian Cricketer Aaron Finch remained unsold at the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 Player Auction.
However, the top-order batsman claimed that being unsold was not unexpected for him.
“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, to be honest. I’d prefer to be playing cricket, but a little bit of time at home won’t be the worst thing,” Finch said.
Finch was a part of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in IPL 2020. He scored 268 runs from his 12 innings. Also the Batsman was released last month which was held on February 18 before Finch went unsold at the IPL 2021.
The T20 series is starting on Monday at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch where Australia is preparing to take on New Zealand in the 5 match test series. Finch claimed that he has been working on some technical things recently.
“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 quick. It’s been nice to have a good chunk of training and focusing on a few little technical changes,” Finch added.
