Finch to go for scans after picking up hip injury in 1st T20I against India

After the ODI series, Australia and India locked horns with each other in the T20I series. The first T20I series took place at Manuka Oval in Canberra. India were head and shoulders above the hosts in every aspect of the game and it was so easy for them to take the first lead in the three-match T20I series.



Virat Kohli’s side won by 11 runs. Yuzvendra Chahal who came in as concussion substitute for injured Ravindra Jadeja changed the course of the game. The wrist-spinner brought the best out of himself as he picked up three important wickets.

Aaron Finch, Steve Smith and Matthew Wade fell prey to Chahal’s bowling. Chahal was named the player of the match for his stunning bowling figures of 3/25. During India’s batting, Australia captain Aaron Finch seemed to have picked up a hip injury while fielding.

In a recent development, it was learnt that the cricketer is all set to undergo scans in the glute area. It all happened when he put in a dive to save runs for his team and picked up an injury. Despite that, he still continued to open the innings for Australia.

Finch scored 35 off 26 including 5 fours and a six. Though he played quick-fire knock he found it really hard to run between the wickets. As things stand, he will undergo scans and his scan reports would decide next development in the squad.

“A bit of a hip or a glute or something like that at the moment. We’ll wait and see, but it progressively got worse throughout the game. We’ll have a scan tomorrow and see how we go,” told Australia skipper Finch to Fox Cricket after the game.

“The injury got progressively worse as the game went on (about his injury to the hip). Their doctor had ruled Jadeja out due to concussion. You can’t be challenging a medical expert’s opinion. We probably leaked too may runs at the death. Then while chasing, we didn’t hit too many boundaries in the 6-over period,” Finch said at the post-match presentation.

Australia will give absolutely everything to win the second game and it is a must-win encounter for them. The second and third game will take place at the Sydney Cricket Ground on December 6th and 8th respectively.
