Cricket: Finn Confident With the Win Against Pakistan
“We are very confident going into this last game. We have had two resounding victories in this series so far and are still 2-1 up – I don’t think that can be forgotten. I don’t think we are going to take a different approach to this game. We go into every Test match wanting to win – and wanting to win resoundingly. It didn’t quite happen at the Oval, we understand why it didn’t happen and have assessed those things – we are going to start practising today (Tuesday) and are looking towards playing very hard and winning this Test match,” he also added. The 21-year-old declared the team is ready to win even the Test game on Thursday which is the last contest for them before Brisbane tour begins. “We have a Test match starting on Thursday and we want to win that. There is a lot of cricket to be played. Australia have a series in India before the Ashes and we’ve a one-day series with Pakistan to contend with. There is a lot of water to go under the bridge between now and then. I’m not looking towards the Ashes, I’m just looking towards – hopefully – playing in this game, trying to perform well and trying to get onto that Ashes trip because nothing is signed and sealed yet,” Finn said.
To the opposite, Pakistan’s batsman Umar Amin claimed England will be the ones to be afraid of the strong Pakistan, not the reverse, taking account that after the 2-0 advantage England had here, they were immediately beaten, thing which might label the English playing as an uncertain one. “England were 2-0 up going to the Oval – but suddenly after the way they were beaten there, they must be on the back foot. You’re always in the game against them – even if they get a partnership going, you never give up. You’re never out of it – because they can collapse at any time. We just want a repeat of the Oval. We proved there we are a better side,” Amin ended. However, the Pakistans could be also boosted by Umar Gul’s return at Lord’s.11
