Pune sign Finch as Clarke`s replacementPune: Pune Warriors have roped in Aaron Finch as replacement for Michael Clarke for the upcoming sixth edition of the Indian Premier League.

The Australian captain was ruled out of the entire season with a back injury.

Finch, a top-order batsman from Australia, tweeted the development and is expected to leave for India tomorrow.

Pune Warriors will be Finch`s third team in the IPL, having represented Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils

He was released by Delhi Daredevils in November last year and went unsold in the auction on February 3 at a base price of USD 200,000.

He represents Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League and averaged 66.40 in eight matches last season, scoring 332 runs with a highest score of 111 not out.

But he could not translate that performance for Australia, scoring 4, 7 and 1 in the three T20Is in January against Sri Lanka and the West Indies.

Overall, he has scored 1699 runs in 58 domestic T20 matches at 36.14 with a strike-rate of 130.49.

The Warriors will be led by Angelo Mathews this season.
