Australia provides injury update on Finch, Stoinis & Tim David

Captain Aaron Finch says if he feels any hamstring twinge he’ll have no tinge of regret at possibly ending his Australian career on the sidelines.

Finch on Thursday rated himself a 70 per cent chance of playing in Australia’s do-or-die T20 World Cup clash against Afghanistan on Friday night.

But if he has one per cent of doubt come game time, Finch will withdraw from a fixture the Australians must win to have any hope of advancing to the semi-finals.

Finch said middle-order blaster Tim David, also suffering a hamstring niggle, was in the exact situation.

“The worst possible scenario is that you leave the guys short out there … you don’t want to compromise the team performance by having a guy go down who comes in with a niggle,” he said.

Allrounder Marcus Stoinis has been cleared of his hamstring scare and will play against the Afghans. (Canberra Times)
