Two-time IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have roped in aggressive Australian opener Aaron Finch as a replacement for England’s Alex Hales for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League.

“Hales has cited bubble fatigue as his reason for withdrawal from the tournament,” IPL stated in a media release.

Finch, who led Australia to an ICC T20 World Cup win in 2021 in UAE , has so far played 88 T20Is scoring 2,686 runs with the help of two hundreds and 15 half-centuries.

“Finch, who has played 87 IPL games and has over 2000 IPL runs, will join KKR at the price of Rs 1.5 crore”, it added.

The Australian white-ball captain, who last played for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 2020 edition, was not picked by any team in the IPL mega auction last month.
