Steven Finn: Conditions no reason for failure

Posted by Admin On 11:07 AM

The easy conclusion to England's struggles so far in India is that they have failed to adapt to sub-continental conditions. How else can their descent to wide-margin one-day international defeats - the second in Delhi on Monday was a touchingly one-sided match be explained, barely a month after they beat India 3-0 at home in the same format.
Yet, as they ready for Thursday's crunch match in Mohali, where they must win to avoid losing this five-match series already, Steven Finn made it clear England themselves do not believe they have been undo purely by a switch of continents.
It's not too unlike to any other one-day cricket I've played before,he said of the challenge currently facing England.The basic main attitude is still the same.England creator on a typically slow pitch in last week's first match in Hyderabad, but there seemed to be a level playing field at the Feroz Shah Kotla three days ago.
There was certainly enough pace for Finn to discomfort India's top order - although he ended up wicketless as Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli raced to victory in a incessant double-century stand. His underlying principle is simply that India has been at the top of their game in two matches, and England unarguably has not.
India has played well the last couple of games. We haven't performed at our peak - that is obvious,he added.But there is a lot of belief in the camp that we're going to come back and win this sequence.Finn sees no forceful reason at all why there should abruptly be a gulf between these two teams.
They have obviously had much more exposure to this situation than we have, but we learn every over we face or bowl.We've got nothing to lose now.We're playing against the world champions in their own situation.
Nothing will be left in the dressing-room over these next three games, and we're really looking forward to them.Finn has profusion more cricket to look forward to, because - unlike his team-mates, who will be set for a two-month break up to Christmas after this sequence ends next week - he is headed for New Zealand, where he will be playing for Otago Volts.
