Hand­scomb Called Up as Cover for Finch

The Economic Times - - Sports: The Great Games -

Aus­tralia have in­cluded bats­man Peter Hand­scomb to the squad for the ODI tour of In­dia as cover for in­jured opener Aaron Finch. Ac­cord­ing to a re­port cricket.com.au, Hand­comb will fly in as cover ahead of Sun­day’s se­ries opener in Chennai. Finch ag­gra­vated a calf in­jury dur­ing train­ing here on Thurs­day. A scan later re­vealed that he would need to sit out the early part of the five-match se­ries. There were ini­tial fears that the in­jury might rule out Finch for the en­tire tour, but ac­cord­ing to the re­port the opener will re­main with the squad with an aim to play in the later part of the se­ries. —PTI
