Middlesex County Cricket Club is delighted to announce that Steven Finn has been called up to the England Test squad for the fourth Test match against India, starting on Thursday at Old Trafford, after Liam Plunkett was withdrawn from the squad due to an ankle injury.
Angus Fraser, Middlesex's Managing Director of Cricket quoted.....
Steven's call up is thoroughly deserved and is reward for all the hard work he has put in over the past six months. During the summer his bowling has continued to improve and he has met and come through every challenge that has been placed in front of him. To see him bowling fast and very well last week to players of the quality of Tilikaratne Dilshan, Kevin Pietersen and Jason Roy in t20 cricket in front of a full house at Lord's, with Sky paying close attention to everything he did, highlights the progress he has made.
Congratulations must go to Steven and Richard Johnson, Middlesex CCC's Assistant/Bowling Coach, for getting to this position. I am extremely proud of the work they have done as Steven was not in a very good place at all when he returned from Australia in January.
