The fast bowler of the England Cricket team, Steven Finn, has said that his bowling is going pretty well at the moment and although he did not get that many wickets in the previous game, he did a pretty good job with the ball.
England lost the last game against Sri Lanka by 8 wickets.
The hosts were chasing 180 odd and they got the job done easily. At the start, they had a bit of a hiccup with Finn getting one of the openers out and Moeen Ali chipping in too with a wicket, but, thereafter, it was an easy ride for them.
During that game, Finn attacked Tillakaratne Dilshan with a number of short pitched deliveries up front.
Many people thought at this point in time when a batsman has just been killed by a bumper; it was not the right thing to do for Finn.
However, the Middlesex man himself does not think that he should not have done that to Dilshan.
According to Finn, the laws of the game can’t be changed because of that tragedy. People need to accept it and move on. Bowling bouncers is one of the ways by which a bowler can put batsman into trouble.
When being told about his criticism for bowling those bouncers, Finn said, “Well, I am out there to get the batsman out of his comfort zone. I have to use all the things that are there in my repertoire to unsettle him and bouncer is one of them. I understand that people are thinking a little differently right now, but, in my opinion, the game should go on like this. There’s no need to change anything.”
When asked how he would rate his bowling in the second ODI, Finn said, “I think it was pretty good. When good shots get played on your bowling, you can’t do anything about it and they did play some good shots. But, the ball was coming out of my hands pretty well and I was hitting the marks that I wanted to.”
