Khawaja has been in tremendous form in T20 format in Big Bash League

Usman Khawaja added to squad as Aaron Finch gets unfit

The left-handed batsman of the Australian Cricket Team Usman Khawaja who has not been dismissed for less than 50 in any match since the series against New Zealand in October has been added to the T20 squad against India after captain Aaron Finch got injured.

Khawaja had scored 2 centuries and 2 fifties in 4 matches he played in the Big Bash League (BBL) as he was the second highest scorer of the league, although most of the other players had 9 or 10 games. But Khawaja had an amazing average and strike rate.

Shane Watson, who was Khawaja's team-mate in Sydney Thunder team, said that the batsman is in incredible form at the moment in all the formats of the game so it would be nice to give him chance. He may open the innings with Shaun Marsh in the last game.

Steven Smith and David Warner will be on their way to New Zealand on 30 January, as they have to play the first One-Day International game against the Kiwis on 3 February, and final T20 game against India will be played on 31 January, so there will be vacancy.

Khawaja can perform and make his case for the World T20 Championship which will be held in India in March. Watson said that Finch has hurt his hamstring and will not play the final game but it is not decided at the moment that who will lead the side in his absence.
