Aaron Finch I IPL return hard to justify for absent Australian players, says Aaron Finch
- Aaron Finch expressed surprise at the decision of the Australian players
- Finch said it would be difficult to justify his participation when the IPL resumes
- Australia’s top 7 players withdraw from tour of West Indies and Bangladesh
Sydney: Expressing “surprise” at some of Australia’s top players from the touring squad for the upcoming limited-overs series, captain (ODI and T20) Aaron Finch said such cricketers should consider their participation in the second half of the postponed IPL 2021. It would be difficult to justify.
Seven of the country’s top players David Warner, Pat Cummins, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson, Marcus Stoinis and Daniel Sams have announced their withdrawal from the squad for the upcoming tour of West Indies and Bangladesh for various reasons. Warner and Cummins had decided not to tour the West Indies and Bangladesh as a “long-term plan”. Finch, however, said that he can understand the decision of his teammates.
Cricket.com.au was quoted as saying by ‘SEN Radio’ that Finch expressed “surprise about the other players”. Finch, the captain of the limited overs team, said, ‘I have spoken to all of them. I was a little surprised but it is understandable. I wanted him to be here (with the team).’
When asked about the players requesting him to be unavailable for selection for the tour, Finch said, “I think it will be difficult for him to justify playing in the second half of the IPL.” Because in the coming times, the workload for the T20 World Cup and the domestic season will increase significantly.
Earlier this week, Australia’s selection committee chairman Trevor Hohns said that he expects the country’s players not to feature in the T20 league in mid-September if the tri-series with West Indies and Afghanistan is held at the time of the IPL. Will play.
