T20 World Cup: Aaron Finch confident of making comeback after knee surgery says, ‘There is plenty of time for the T20 WC’ – Australia skipper Aaron Finch, who suffered a knee injury during West Indies tour, is confident of making comeback after knee surgery for the T20 World Cup scheduled to take place later this year in UAE. Finch suffered a cartilage injury in St Lucia earlier this month but was able to lead Australia in five T20s against the Windies.

“I had a little injury just doing a fielding session before I left – I’ve never had any knee problems – and it just started to get a bit sore. The more that we trained and played … stopping and starting, turning, that kind of thing was causing it some issues. So I had a couple of scans in the West Indies and there was a little bit of cartilage, a bit of meniscus damage. Hopefully (it will be) a quick cleanout once I’m out of quarantine and it’ll have me back up and running in plenty of time for the T20 World Cup,” Finch told SEN Radio.

“It’s not a flattering scoreline but the West Indies have got a very experienced side … (and) some brute power. But I think the fact we were in three of those games was a real positive. We should’ve got over the line in the first one – that was a really ordinary batting display chasing 140 – then we won the fourth game and were in the fifth one for a fair amount of time. So with a really inexperienced group, the fact we were able to match the West Indies for a lot of that series – and we just got blown away in a couple of different parts, which when you’ve got a group that is still developing (is going to happen) – was a real positive,” Finch said.
