Dubai. Australian captain Aaron Finch has made a premature recovery from knee surgery in August, making him available for the T20 World Cup warm-up match against India on October 20. There were initially doubts over Finch’s availability for Australia’s two warm-up matches against New Zealand (October 18) and India (October 20).
He said in a virtual conference before the tournament on Thursday, “Yes, it (knee) is fine. I think tomorrow it will be nine weeks after the surgery. So everything is going well. This is probably two weeks ahead of schedule.
Finch reiterated that David Warner would be ready for the T20 World Cup, who was dropped by Sunrisers Hyderabad at the end of the UAE leg of the Indian Premier League due to poor form.
“I think over the years we have seen Warner bat against teams around the world, he is a much better player. I have no problem with his preparations.
The Australian team will begin their T20 World Cup campaign against South Africa on 23 October.
