Here’s why Aaron Finch is not playing in the game against Mumbai Indians

Posted On

Gujarat Lion’s middle order batsman Aaron Finch is not playing against the Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.


Lions skipper Suresh Raina gave a funny reason for Finch to miss out the game.

After losing the coin toss, Raina stated that Finch has lost his the kit bag. So now, he is not a part of the playing XI since his kitbag didn’t arrive in time today.


“We just need to start well. We’ve been chasing well. Last game, we batted well. We’ll look to score and see what happens. The wicket looks pretty dry. It might get slower. Hopefully, we post a good score and defend. We have 2 changes. Finchy misses out, unfortunately, his kit bag didn’t arrive. Jason Roy and Munaf Patel come in for Finch and Jakati,” Raina told Scott Styris during the toss time.

Well, Finch’s absence in GL’s fourth game will surely be a worry for them as the Aussie star batsman is a prolific T20 batsman.
