Cricket: Finn recalled to England squad

posted in: News | 0

Steven Finn has been recalled to the England squad for the fourth Investec Test against India.
The Middlesex paceman has replaced Liam Plunkett after the Yorkshire bowler was ruled out due to an ankle injury.
Plunkett experienced some discomfort in his left ankle after the second Test defeat at Lord’s and sat out the third Test in Southampton, which England won by 266 runs to square the series at 1-1, as a result.
The problem has still not completely settled down so Plunkett will now also miss the fourth Test which starts at Old Trafford on Thursday.
Finn, 25, endured a torrid time in Australia over the winter, with his bowling regressing to the point where he was deemed unselectable, despite England suffering an Ashes whitewash defeat.
However, he has shown signs of his best form on his return for Middlesex this season and that has convinced the England selectors that he deserves another chance on the international stage,
Finn has taken 90 wickets in 23 Test matches for England at an average of 29.40, while he has claimed 44 wickets for Middlesex in 10 County Championship Division One matches this season at an average of 29.72.
