Sydney - Australia captain Aaron Finch is in doubt for next month's World Twenty20 tournament in India because of a hamstring strain.

Cricket Australia said Monday that Finch will not require surgery but his rehabilitation may take some time and his fitness will not be certain until much closer to the tournament

Finch suffered the injury while running between wickets in the second T20 international against India in Melbourne on Friday.

Cricket Australia medical manager Alex Kountouris said the injury is not a recurrence of a previous hamstring strain which needed surgery in April.

He said "we are aiming to have Aaron fit for the ICC World T20 in India but will have better idea about his fitness for that tournament in the coming weeks."
