Former Australian captain Aaron Finch had to unfortunately miss the 16’th match of the Vivo Indian Premier League (IPL) between Gujarat Lions and Mumbai Indians. While the two captains were out for the toss Gujarat Lions captain Suresh Raina stated that the 30 year old Finch had to miss the game as his cricket kit went missing. Yeah, you read that right!
It was a major loss for Gujarat Lions as they had just recently opened their IPL account in their previous encounter VS Rising Pune SuperGiant. Aaron Finch in that match, had build on a great start given by the top order and finished the game for the Lions with 32 very important runs. His knock included 2 humongous sixes while making sure that Gujarat cross the finishing line with ease.
After hearing about this funny cricket kit confusion social media went totally ‘MAD’ with people posting all kinds of funny things and trolling Gujarat Lions about this incident. Here are a few of the funny twitter reactions..

Aaron Finch is not playing today for Gujarat because he has misplaced his kit bag. Good way of kicking someone out of the team #IPL

Aaron Finch ruled out because he has lost the Kit bag…
Jason Roy replaced him and I suspect he must have misplaced Finch kit bag!
