Profile

Standing at 6' 7'' Steven Finn is the latest beanpole fast bowler to carry England's hopes. Pinging the ball down from the clouds he has the heady blend of pace and trampolining bounce to rattle the best players. At his best, it is easy to understand why he has one of the best Test strike rates of the past decade, but his career has also been fraught with uncertainty.
