KKR Sign Aaron Finch as Replacement for Alex Hales

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Friday introduced the signing of Australia white-ball captain Aaron Finch for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The opening batter will change England’s Alex Hales who pulled out of the match citing bubble fatigue.

The Shahrukh Khan-owned franchise took to social media on Friday to make the announcement.

“Aaron Finch joins KKR as a replacement for Alex Hales.  Welcome to the #GalaxyOfKnights, @AaronFinch5! #KKR #KKRHaiTaiyaar #IPL2022,” KKR tweeted.

Meanwhile, the IPL governing council launched an official assertion on signing of Aaron Finch. He will be part of KKR on the value of INR 1.5 Crore.

Finch, who led Australia to their maiden T20 World Cup triumph within the UAE final 12 months, has returned to the IPL after lacking out on the earlier season. Back in 2020, he represented Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and performed his final match in opposition to Sunrisers Hyderabad in Abu Dhabi.

The fifteenth version of the match will kickstart on March 26 with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) locking horns with KKR on the iconic Wankhede Stadium.
