Hurt Finch faces further time on sidelines

Australia

Australia and Yorkshire top order batsman Aaron Finch has been dealt another blow in terms of injury, as he picked up a foot injury during this weekend's T20 Blast fixture against Durham.

The Vikings batsman got a duck in that game, and it was later revealed that he felt a little 'crack' in his foot, causing him to miss Sunday's game against Derbyshire. This comes on the heels of his hamstring injury, which he picked up in the IPL.

Yorkshire director of cricket Martyn Moxon said: "In a worst-case scenario, it could be the end of the season for him.

"It’s not looking great; he’s had a scan and, from an initial reading of that scan, it looks as though there’s some kind of a stress reaction.

"We're going to get another reading on it and, hopefully, a conclusive diagnosis, but it looks as though Finchy could be out for a while.

"He set off to run for a ball in the field on Friday, and he felt a little crack in his foot; he must have had his weight at the wrong angle, or something."
