Australia to monitor Aaron Finch’s knee injury ahead of ODI series

News

The visitors are already without many players who would make up their usual ODI top order

Australia will monitor the fitness of captain Aaron Finch ahead of the ODI series against West Indies after he picked up a knee injury during the final T20I in St Lucia.

Finch twisted his knee in the field and was significantly hampered during the Australian chase, especially when running between the wickets. His innings of 34 was ended by a spectacular catch at long-on by Fabian Allen as Australia fell 16 short to concede the series 4-1.

A Cricket Australia spokesperson said Finch had a mild knee complaint earlier in the tour, which he had fully recovered from.

The squad travels to Barbados on Saturday ahead of the three-match ODI series, which begins on Tuesday. They are already without the majority of the players who would make up their usual ODI top order so they will want Finch to be available.
