Finch had a memorable 2020 IPL in the UAE, where he averaged just 223 with just a 50-plus score for the Royal Challengers Bangalore

He had an equally nondescript campaign in the Big Bash League (BBL), managing only 179 runs with 1,376 over 13 innings for the Melbourne Renegades

The auctions took place on 18 February in Chennai, and Australians Glenn Maxwell and Jhye Richardson struck gold for 14 rupees25 and 25 respectively Rs 14 crore

Australia will play against New Zealand in a T20I series of five games at the Hagley Oval from Monday

Finch worked on some technical aspects during the quarantine before the clashes against the team’s Trans-Tasman rivals and is now hoping to regain his form after a lengthy lean period

“I’ve been working on a few little technical things and trying to put a little less strain on my forefoot. Sometimes I can be a little flat and my feet get planted and then I have trouble moving again,” Finch said

“I’ve talked a lot and worked a good deal with Andrew McDonald, who I return to every time things don’t seem quite right and he seems to sort it out pretty quickly, so it was nice to have a good bit of training and focus on a few technical changes “
