Six-foot-seven-inch In the 2010s, Steven Finn was one of several beanpole fast bowlers who carried England’s dreams, but despite a heady combination of pace and trampolining bounce that earned him a decent Test average of 30, it was a mantle he did not always wear cheerfully.

In 2005, when he was 16 years old, Finn earned his Middlesex county debut. From Under-16s on up, Finn represented England at all age groups. He had a strong 2009 campaign for Middlesex, collecting 53 wickets at a County Championship-leading 30.64. On his Test debut in Bangladesh in 2010, he made an impression after being added to the team as an injury replacement for England’s tour of Bangladesh. On a placid Chittagong track, he showed good pace and bounce. Now he is playing in Sussex.

 He bowled Australia’s captain Michael Clarke later in the innings, finishing with figures of 2/38. Finn once more captured the valuable wickets of both Smith and Clarke during Australia’s second innings, along with his greatest stats of 6/79 that smashed through the Australian middle order on his way to winning player of the match.

On June 1, 2005, he played in his maiden first-class match for Middlesex at Fenner’s against Cambridge UCCE. He did not bat but did take one wicket for 16 runs (1/16) and 1/37. He broke the previous record for Middlesex’s youngest first-class début, held by 16-year-old Fred Titmus in 1949. Steven also participated in Middlesex youth cricket.
