Superstar Aaron Finch might have been signed by Yorkshire as a Twenty20 specialist - but the Aussie is hoping that his spell at Headingley can earn him a place in Darren Lehmann’s Test team.

Finch, who holds the international T20 record for the highest score for his 156 against England, will - weather permitting - make his Vikings debut in tomorrow’s clash against Derbyshire at Headingley.

His arrival co-incides with Kane Williamson’s departure, for New Zealand’s tour of the Caribbean, and Finch said: “I had interest from other sides but that didn’t interest me, I don’t feel like I need to prove anything in T20s.

“Over the past few years my four day form has been pretty poor but my T20 form has not been too bad.

“So I think for me personally this will be a good opportunity to play a handful of four-day matches, experience county cricket and experience English conditions, which is going to be so crucial.”
