Cricket – Finn ready to prove his worth

Steven Finn is confident that he will be added to England's Test squad for the South Africa series in the next few weeks. The 26-year-old fast bowler is currently in the United Arab Emirates with England Lions for their Twenty20 series against Pakistan A. He missed the recent series against Pakistan in the UAE with a stress fracture in his left foot. But he will test himself with a run-out for the Lions in his bid to join up with England for the four-match campaign in South Africa that starts on Boxing Day in Durban. "It's handy to be able to come out here and have a bridge between the rehab in England to hopefully going out to South Africa," Finn said. "It's a fine balance between making sure that my foot is right and doing myself justice and getting enough overs in practice." England are 3/1 with bet365 to win the South Africa series outright and can be backed at 5/2 to triumph in the first Test.
