Finn remains in England squad
London, UK - Steven Finn has been retained in a 13-man England squad for this week's fourth Test against South Africa after the injured Mark Wood was ruled out of the Old Trafford match.
Just hours after England wrapped up a 239-run win in the third Test at The Oval on Monday, a result that left the hosts 2-1 up with one to play, the selectors announced that Finn would travel with the squad to Manchester, where the series finale starts on Friday.
Finn was summoned as late cover for Wood on the eve of The Oval clash, after the Durham quick was sidelined with a heel injury that means he has now been omitted from the Old Trafford squad as well, but did not make it into the XI.
Monday's announcement means Middlesex batsman Dawid Malan is set to be given another chance to prove his worth at Test level after managing scores of just one and ten on debut at The Oval.
