Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) batsman Aaron Finch is currently facing a run crisis in Indian Premier League’s (IPL) ongoing edition. Having missed out on playing the first game due to his marriage, Finch was slotted into the lineup in the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
However, the raw pace of Umesh Yadav had outcome Finch on Friday. He was caught in front of stumps and was declared LBW. But the fate should not repeat twice right?
Unfortunately, Finch suffered the same fate in the game against Chennai Super Kings as well on Sunday in Mohali. He came onto the crease at No. 5 in Punjab’s batting order. But was once again caught on a crease. He fell victim to the googly of Imran Tahir.
Finch had fallen to the same trap twice playing for his seventh franchise in IPL history. One of the fans has provided his support to out of form Finch owing to the bad luck.
The fan’s tweet read: “Bad start but we are confident that you will be back with blast.. Millions of fans r waiting from India @AaronFinch5″

Chris Gayle Announced His Arrival:
Despite the woeful form of Aaron Finch, Kings XI Punjab camp have plenty to cheer about going into the season eleven.
Their hidden talisman Chris Gayle had announced his arrival to IPL 2018, in style.
The southpaw along with KL Rahul had blown Chennai bowlers all over the park inside the powerplay overs.
The Windies star Gayle has heavily impressed with the way he dealt both spinners and pacers. He played with authority and reaped benefits with a scintillating 63-run knock.
The management will be hoping that Gayle continues his impressive form in the coming games.
His form could define Punjab’s season despite the massive batting potential they have in their ranks.
