Finch ready to return

The 35-year-old has missed the Renegades’ opening three matches, taking time to recover from a knee injury after leading Australia to its maiden T20 World Cup title.


But Finch, the Renegades’ all-time leading run-scorer, confirmed he is now good to go. 


His return will provide a major boost to the Renegades’ inexperienced batting line-up as they look to improve on a 1-2 start to the season.


“I’ll play,” Finch told media on Monday.


“I’ll hit a lot of balls over in the next couple of days but all’s feeling good at the moment.


“I trained the other day. I haven’t done a huge amount of running or anything, but I batted and felt pretty good. I’ll have a good solid hit-out today and a decent field.


“We pushed really hard to get back (for the World Cup) and that was a risk well worth taking. 


“It just probably needed a little bit more time and from the end of the World Cup to now, there’s been a good month of rehab into (my knee) which has helped.”


The Renegades will now play three straight games at Marvel Stadium, with back-to-back clashes against the Scorchers on December 22 and 26, followed by the Hobart Hurricanes on December 29.


Fans who buy a ticket to the match on December 22 will get free access to the game on December 26.
