Yorkshire: Glenn Maxwell set to replace injured Aaron Finch
Last updated on .From the section Cricket
Yorkshire have extended their deal with Glenn Maxwell after Aaron Finch was ruled out for the rest of the season.
All-rounder Maxwell was set to join the Australia A squad in India but he will instead remain at Yorkshire.
The 26-year-old was originally signed for the T20 Blast, but will now be available for the One-Day Cup and County Championship as well.
However, New Zealand's Kane Williamson will join the club for the final four games of the Championship season.
Finch's foot injury ended a poor run at Yorkshire, in which he averaged 12.66 in the T20 Blast.
|Glenn Maxwell has scored 212 runs in 10 T20 Blast matches for Yorkshire this season, including an unbeaten 92. He has also picked up 12 wickets at an average of 19.42|
It is the latest in a series of injury problems for the batsman, who bruised a lung during a second XI game, shortly after recovering from a hamstring injury suffered while playing in the Indian Premier League.
"That's the end of the season for Aaron, as far as Yorkshire is concerned," director of cricket Martyn Moxon told the club website:
"It is a great disappointment for Aaron and the club and we wish him a speedy recovery."
