In a Big Bash League match, Australia’s batsman was shaken by a bouncer
The ball hit the hand so fast that the batter immediately threw the bat
new Delhi. Aaron Finch, the dashing batsman who won Australia the T20 World Cup last year under his captaincy, got injured. He got this injury in the match played between Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Sixers in Bish Bash League. Finch is playing on behalf of Melbourne Renegades. Batting first in this match, Sydney Sixers scored 149 runs at the loss of 8 wickets in 20 overs. Chasing the target of 150 runs, the start of the Melbourne team was not good. Martin Guptill’s Melbourne Renegades got the first blow on the fourth ball of the first over. He could not even open the account.
After this, the responsibility of handling the innings of Renegades fell on the shoulders of Aaron Finch and second opener Nick Maddinson, who came out to bat at number three. Both were slowly moving the innings of Renegades forward. Only then something happened in the third over that Finch got upset. Sydney pacer Ben Dwarshuis bowled a high-speed bouncer. There was extra bounce in this ball, which went straight to Finch’s finger. As soon as the ball was hit, Finch was in pain and he was in a bad condition and he sat down holding his finger. He threw the bat aside. After moaning in pain for some time, he handled himself and started batting again.
