Finn in fine fettle as he hopes for third Test call-up
STEVEN Finn is eager for a piece of the action again as England continue their quest to win a Test series in India for the first time in almost 28 years.
Finn experienced what it was like to be on the outside looking in at a winning team when, in his absence as he continued his recovery from a thigh strain, England pulled off an unexpected success in Mumbai.
Bowling coach David Saker – believes Finn may have the "X-factor" England need to help them make history here in the final two Tests, starting at Kolkata's Eden Gardens tomorrow.
Finn was back in the nets yesterday and afterwards confirmed he would be ready if England decide to pick him, instead of off-colour vice-captain Stuart Broad for the third Test.

"It was difficult knowing that the lads were there in Mumbai, celebrating a win and being together and I was on the other side of the city watching it on the TV," he said.
"It was a strange feeling and something I didn't enjoy missing out on, so I'm definitely keen to get in on the act if that happens this time."
Saker's praise has done no harm either, with Finn adding: "It's definitely encouraging for your bowling coach to be saying that about you."
