Finn vows to return stronger

Steven Finn has vowed to come back a better player as he attempts to rebuild his international career following a nightmare tour of Australia.

The England bowler is preparing to return home after limited-overs coach Ashley Giles declared him "not selectable" due to technical problems with his bowling action.

It brings to an end a frustrating tour for the 24-year-old who did not feature in any of the Ashes Tests as England surrendered the urn with a 5-0 whitewash. He was then overlooked for the opening one-day international as England crashed to a six-wicket defeat and Giles announced on Wednesday that he was to return to England without playing a competitive fixture.

Finn has been a key part of the England bowling attack in recent years, playing in 23 Test matches since his debut in 2010 and while he admits his current predicament is a new experience for him, he is confident that it can make him a better player in the long run.

"I feel as though I can come out of the other side of this as a better bowler and appreciate the game far, far more on the other side of it," he explained.

"I'm not sure I'll take a Test wicket or an ODI or T20 wicket for granted ever again. It's a tough time for me but I'm very positive and confident I can come out of the other side of it."
