Steven Finn has been added to England’s test squad for the series against South Africa beginning later this month. Finn’s inclusion in the test side will be a tremendous boost for the visitors, as Finn can use the benefits of his tall physique efficiently in order to extract bounce from the quick wickets of South Africa. With Finn all fit, the England selectors will surely be spoilt for choice, as the in form Mark Footitt is likely to make his test debut in the Boxing Day test.
Finn was asked to prove his fitness in order to earn his place back in the test squad. Finn also had to miss out from England’s squad for the series against Pakistan in UAE, which they eventually lost. The towering pacer played for the England Lions in UAE recently, and bowled with a lot of heart and vigor.
“I’ve been really pleased with the way things have gone with the Lions,” Finn said. “I’ve bowled my overs and my foot has come through fine. I’m excited by the prospect of linking up with the team out in South Africa.”
England play the first of two warm-up matches on Tuesday against a South Africa Invitational XI, starting at 08:30 GMT.
