Steven Finn Biography


Steven Thomas Finn is a professional England cricketer, born on 4 April 1989, in Watford, Hertfordshire, England. Finn is a 6 feet 7 inches tall right-arm fast bowler and can bat right-handed.


He made his first-class debut at the age of 16 and became the youngest-ever debutant for Middlesex County Cricket Club.


Background


Finn went to Parmiter's School in Garston near Watford. He was also very interested in football and basketball. In 2005, he made his first-class debut for Middlesex County Cricket Club. He also plays for Otago Volts since late 2011.


Debut


In 2009, Finn gave some excellent performances in domestic matches and some injuries to England team players gave him a chance to appear in playing XI.


Finn made his international test debut against Bangladesh on 2 March 2010. In his debut match, he took two wickets for 95 runs. His good form was continued in following games and in his first home match he collected a figure of 9/187 and won Man of the Match award.


On 30 January 2011, Finn made his ODI debut against Australia at Brisbane. In this match, Finn bowled 10 overs and took 1 wicket for 61 runs.


Low Points


Finn had a habit of knocking stumps with his knee at the non-striker's end. This caused a controversy when the South African batsmen complained of being distracted during the 2012 South Africa tour of England.


In 2013, Finn changed his run-up to correct the problem. Later, ICC introduced a law saying that such delivery will be considered as no ball rather than a dead ball, this law is also referred as "Finn's Law".
