Finn re­mains in Eng­land squad

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

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.
