Injured Australia opener Aaron Finch said the only way he can miss out on the home Boxing Day Test against India is, if someone were to "cut off" his finger. Finch was batting on 25 in Australia's second innings during the second Test in Perth when he was hit on his right index finger by a Mohammed Shami delivery.
