Australia’s destructive opener and Gujarat Lions (GL) batsman Aaron Finch recently expressed his eagerness to meet fiance Amy Griffiths. Finch was in India for the tenth edition of the lucrative Indian Premier League (IPL) representing Gujarat Lions (GL) who unfortunately couldn’t quite make it to the playoffs. They finished second from the bottom in the points table. After returning back to Australia a few days back, Finch is all set to meet his fiance finally after a 7-week long wait.
The destructive Australian batsman played 13 games for Gujarat Lions in this season and fetched 300 runs for his side at an average of 25 and a strike rate of 163.04. His stint this year also included two half-centuries. Gujarat Lions played their last game of IPL 10 against the defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) who crushed them by 8 wickets in Kanpur.
However, Finch didn’t quite trouble the scorer’s in that particular game as he was cleaned bowled for just a couple of runs by Rashid Khan. GL ended up scoring 154 in 19.2 overs while SRH chased it down comfortably banking on Warner’s 69* and Vijay Shankar’s unbeaten 63.
Expressing his love for fiance:
Finch went on to social networking site Instagram to express his love and eagerness to meet fiance Amy Griffiths. He uploaded a picture of Amy with a caption, “Can’t wait to see my beautiful fiancée @amy_griffiths tomorrow after 7 weeks!! Thanks for making packing a breeze @antlerluggageoz.”
