Finch injury 'looks bad' - Rohit Sharma

Australian opener Aaron Finch has been helped off the ground with what appeared to be a left leg injury during Mumbai Indians' Indian Premier League clash against Rajasthan Royals.

While more details of Finch's condition will be revealed by scans, the batsman appeared to be in significant pain as he pulled up quickly after completing a quick single. 

He grabbed at his left hamstring and sat down on the turf at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad before he had to be helped off the ground by members of Mumbai's support staff.

After the match, Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma said the injury "looks bad" for Finch.

 

Aaron Finch doesn't look good right now.

 

- said Rohit.

"I think he's going to take a scan tomorrow (Wednesday) so we'll take it from there.  

"It looks bad at the moment but we have to wait for the scans."

Finch looked to be in good touch early in his innings, hitting two crisply-timed boundaries before he retired hurt on 10.

Tim Southee and James Faulkner are quick to Finch's side  His Australian teammate Glenn Maxwell was quick to tweet his support for his close friend and former housemate. Finch had registered scores of 5 and 8 in his first two matches in this year's edition of the IPL.

Feeling for my mate @AaronFinch5 right now! Just as he was starting to look comfortable at the crease again. Have a speedy recovery mate!
