New Delhi: Australia’s Aaron Finch on Sunday confessed that he was not shocked after going unsold in the Indian Premier League auctions held at Chennai on February 18.
It would’ve been nice to be playing again, it’s an amazing competition to be a part of, but it wasn’t unexpected that I didn’t get picked up to be honest,” Finch told reporters on the eve of the first T20 International against New Zealand here.
“I’ve been working on a few little technical things, trying to get a little bit less weight on my front foot. At times I can be a little bit flat-footed and my feet get planted and then I struggle to move again,” Finch said.
“I have my initial movement and then I get a little bit stuck. 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.
“So it’s been nice to have a good chunk of training and focusing on a few little technical changes,” Finch added.
“I’d prefer to be playing cricket, but a little bit of time at home might not be the worst thing, having quite a full schedule since August when we left for the UK and a few times in quarantine and a lot of times in hubs and bubbles…”
“I think just getting home and recharging the batteries might be nice. I know my wife’s definitely looking forward to it,” Finch added.
