Aaron Finch returns from injury
Australian opening batsman Aaron Finch, who had undergone a surgery to his torn hamstring, is all set to make his return to competitive cricket.
The 28-year-old will be making his comeback through the two matches of the Natwest T20 Blast this week where he represents Yorkshire.
Confirming his comeback news, Finch expressed confidence in his fitness and appeared comfortable in his practice sessions.
“I'm in a good place and can't wait to help the side out,” said Finch.
“I've had a couple of nets and I'm feeling good.
“I will play the two T20 matches arranged at Barnsley on Thursday and I'm hoping I can hit the ground running.”
The Australian seems visibly happy to return to his county side after the injury and is eager to contribute with the willow.
Lavishing praise on the passion for the game at Yorkshire, Finch stated that the dressing room atmosphere was extremely encouraging for all players.
"It is great to be back at Yorkshire.
“I've missed being with the boys.
“This is a great club that breeds winners.
“The environment is very positive and hopefully my contributions with the bat will help the club continue to prosper."
Finch had injured his hamstring during his stint with the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League this year during their clash against Rajasthan Royals.
Consequently, the explosive batsman was carried off the field by the Mumbai Indians support staff and had been out of cricketing action since then.
