Finch reiterated that a struggling David Warner, who was dropped from Sunrisers Hyderabad playing team during the fag end of the Indian Premier League in the UAE, would be ready for the T20 World Cup.
Finch backed Warner to be his opening partner at the T20 World Cup despite Warner going through a lean patch with the bat and being dropped by Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL this year.
The IPL will resume on 19 September in the UAE after being suspended in May due to the second wave of COVID-19 in India, which led to multiple cases inside its bio-bubble.
