Steven Finn wants his team to seal the Test series against Pakistan

England bowler, Steven Finn, wants his team to overcome the Oval jinx and seal the four-match Test series against Pakistan with a victory in the decider at Lord’s.

England cricket team is now leading the 4-match test series 2-1 following their 4-wicket defeat that stopped their six straight Test wins. Now, the fourth and final test match has become a crucial one for both England and Pakistan team. England will be looking for a victory or at least a draw to win the series. On the other hand, Pakistan need a must victory to level the series to 2-2.

However, Steven Finn is confident about his team’s performance in the match decider. He does not feel there are any major areas of concern in the squad.

Though England set an easy chasing target of 148 against Pakistan at the Oval, it finished in tense conditions as James Anderson and Graeme Swann were likely to turnaround the match result with taking some quick wickets.

Thanks to young star, Umar Akmal, Pakistan could successfully reach the landmark despite losing three wickets in four overs to put the match back in the balance.

Steven Finn said that his team is confident going into the last game. This young bowler, who made his debut against Bangladesh in March, has so far taken 28 wickets in seven matches.

The fourth and final test match will be held on August 26 at Lord’s. It is going to be the last test match before they start Ashes series in Brisbane on November 25.
