Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have signed Australia’s T20 World Cup-winning captain Aaron Finch as a replacement for Englishman Alex Hales ahead of the Indian Premier League 2022 (IPL 2022) season. Hales has cited bubble fatigue as his reason for withdrawal from the tournament, the IPL stated in a press release on Friday evening. Finch has represented Australia in 88 T20Is and has scored 2,686 runs, including two hundreds and 15 half-centuries. Finch, who has played 87 IPL games and has over 2000 IPL runs, will join KKR at the price of Rs 1.5 crore.
KKR – the two-time IPL champions – will kickstart the IPL 2022 proceedings on March 26 when they take on Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
