Aaron Finch furious at Australian players playing in IPL
Australian limited overs captain Aaron Finch was furious at his teammates, who preferred the IPL over the national team. Finch expressed surprise considering Australia’s workload over the next few months. He said in a conversation with Sen Radio, ‘I am a little surprised. I talked to all of them. It’s a bit surprising, but it’s understandable. But I think he should have been available for the national team. I think it will be difficult for him to justify playing in the second phase of IPL 2021.
He had further said, ‘It is a difficult situation where everyone is, but personally I am finding it difficult to understand how mentally difficult and challenging it is. For your family too. This is my opinion.’ Meanwhile, the BCCI officials have ensured to the IPL franchises that majority of the foreign players will participate.
Recently, the ECB made it clear that their players would focus on international cricket. However, if reports are to be believed, talks are on between the BCCI and the ECB for the participation of English cricketers. A clarification on the participation of foreign players is expected on July 15.
