The 34-year-old also had a rough moment with the bat in the recently concluded Big Bash League as he scored only 179 runs in 13 innings at an average of 13.76. For best cricket tips to win, check out!


Finch said it would have been nice to play in the IPL again but it was not unexpected for him to not be picked in the auction.


“It would’ve been nice to be playing again, it’s an amazing competition to be a part of, but it wasn’t unexpected that I didn’t get picked up to be honest,” Finch was quoted as saying by


“I’d prefer to be playing cricket, but a little bit of time at home might not be the worst thing, having quite a full schedule since August when we left for the UK and a few times in quarantine and a lot of times in hubs and bubbles, I think just getting home and recharging the batteries might be nice. I know my wife’s definitely looking forward to it,” he added.


The Australian skipper said he is working on his technical faults which pulled him back in the game.


“I’ve been working on a few little technical things, trying to get a little bit less weight on my front foot. At times I can be a little bit flat-footed and my feet get planted and then I struggle to move again. I have my initial movement and then I get a little bit stuck.


He further talked about training under Australia’s assistant coach Andrew McDonald who has been helping him out fixing his batting.


“I’ve talked a lot and worked a fair bit with Andrew McDonald, who I go back to every time things don’t seem quite right and he seems to sort it out pretty quick, so it’s been nice to have a good chunk of training and focusing on a few little technical changes,” he signed off.
