Making his debut aged just 20 in 2010, Steven Finn’s meteoric rise has seen him become the youngest Englishman in history to take 50 Test wickets.
Steven Finn odds could prove lucrative in bowler markets
Having played only 12 Test internationals, Finn’s economy rate of under 30 is particularly impressive, and, near the top of the bowling order, Finn would always appear to be a good bet to take the first wicket of a match.
Five-wicket hauls have also prove within the capabilities for Finn and this ability makes him look a tremendous bet to be England’s top wicket-taker in upcoming Test matches. Matches in England may prove particularly to Finn’s liking as they are generally hard, meaning that he can unsettle batsmen with his bouncers.
With the West Indies upcoming for England in the Test arena, Finn will be especially excited to bowl at the likes of Shivnerine Chanderpaul, who typically deals better with spin.
Steven Finn a growing force in one-day cricket
The recent one-day series in India saw Finn come of age as a bowler in this form of the game, despite England slumping to a heavy defeat. His displays may mean he is more of a fixture in the England one-day set-up in the future, offering a wider range of Steven Finn odds. The fact that Finn stands at 6ft7ins is an added bonus in one-day cricket as his Yorkers can be highly effective if offered the chance to bowl at the death.
