Steven Finn Bio

Steven Thomas Finn is an English cricketer who was born on April 4, 1989, in Watford, Hertfordshire. Finn is a 6’7″ right-arm medium bowler who can also bat right-handed.

At the age of 16, he made his first-class debut for Middlesex County Cricket Club, becoming the club’s youngest ever debutant.

Background

Finn attended Parmiter’s School in Garston, just outside of Watford. Football and basketball were both two of his favourite games. For Middlesex County Cricket Club, he made his first-class debut in 2005. Since late 2011, he has also been a member of the Otago Volts.

Debut

Finn had some outstanding results in domestic matches in 2009, and due to injuries to England team players, he was given the opportunity to play in the starting XI.

On March 2, 2010, Finn made his international test debut against Bangladesh. He took two wickets for 95 runs in his debut match. His strong form continued in subsequent games, and he claimed Man of the Match in his first home match with a figure of 9/187.

Finn made his One-Day International debut against Australia in Brisbane on January 30, 2011. Finn bowled 10 overs and took 1 wicket for 61 runs in this match.

Low Points

At the non-end, striker’s Finn had a habit of knocking stumps with his knee. When the South African batsmen complained of being overwhelmed during the 2012 South Africa tour of England, it sparked a debate.

Finn updated his warm-up in 2013 to fix the issue. After, the International Cricket Council (ICC) passed a rule declaring that such a delivery must be called a no ball rather than a dead ball; this law became known as “Finn’s Law.”
