Hi Wajahat,

Up to your wrist is considered part of your bat.  Usually when the ball hits your finger it also hits your bat.  Previously if it did this it would be considered a double hit however the rule has now been changed.

If you hit the ball with both the finger and the bat and it is not deliberate it is still a good shot now.
