KKR is likely to release Aaron Finch before IPL 2023 Auctions

Since KKR had a lot of spin hitters in the top order and hence, they needed a pace basher like Hales. However, the Englishman pulled out of the competition. Although there were a lot of options in the market, the franchise went ahead with Aaron Finch, who had been performing badly in IPL and also for his country.

In the tournament, Finch yet again did not do well. Especially with the other openers also not firing, the signing of Finch did not end up as a good decision.
