Kolkata Knight Riders signed Aaron Finch as a replacement for England batter Alex Hales for the 2022 edition of the TATA Indian Premier League. Finch – Australia’s ICC T20 World Cup-winning captain, has thus far played 88 T20Is and has scored 2686 runs with the help of 2 hundreds and 15 half-centuries. Finch, who has played 87 IPL games and has over 2000 IPL runs, joined KKR at the price of INR 1.5 crore. When it comes to IPL, Finch is no stranger having played for eight other franchises since his IPL debut in 2010. When he turns up for KKR, it will be his ninth IPL franchise that he will be representing. KKR will benefit from his vast experience and Finch in particular will be looking to make the most in purple and gold after having no bids in the 2022 TATA IPL Auction. Albeit being a replacement player, Finch could well be an important addition to the KKR batting line-up.
