Finch had missed the last two ODIs against England due to hamstring injury. Travis Head was called as cover. Finch was the highest run-getter in the ODI series against England amassing 275 runs from 3 matches at 91.66 that included 2 centuries and a fifty. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Enlightening more on Finch's injury</strong>, Warner said, He didn t feel like he was up. He went through some run through yesterday with the medical staff, he said he sort of felt it a little bit. We didn t want to risk him going into this tri-series with this first game. He's going to be on ice definitely, as quoted by cricket.com.au. <p></p> <p></p>Although Warner did not reveal the playing XI to the media, <b>D arcy Short in all likelihood would be making his debut</b> at SCG on Saturday. Short came to prominence when he registered the highest score in BBL during 2017-18 edition. He romped to 122 not out off 69, including 8 fours and as many sixes. Presently, he is the leading run-scorer of the tournament with 504 runs from 10 matches at 56. <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, <strong>Head has been released from the squad to play the semi-final of BBL</strong> for Adelaide Strikers. He would be returning to the Australian camp in Sydney on Saturday.
