Australia provides injury update on Finch, Stoinis & Tim David

November 3, 2022 at 11:00 AM

Captain Aaron Finch says if he feels any hamstring twinge he’ll have no tinge of regret at possibly ending his Australian career on the sidelines.

Finch on Thursday rated himself a 70 per cent chance of playing in Australia’s do-or-die T20 World Cup clash against Afghanistan on Friday night.

But if he has one per cent of doubt come game time, Finch will withdraw from a fixture the Australians must win to have any hope of advancing to the semi-finals.

Finch said middle-order blaster Tim David, also suffering a hamstring niggle, was in the exact situation.

“The worst possible scenario is that you leave the guys short out there … you don’t want to compromise the team performance by having a guy go down who comes in with a niggle,” he said.

Allrounder Marcus Stoinis has been cleared of his hamstring scare and will play against the Afghans. (Canberra Times)
