Steven Finn is keeping his fingers crossed that he is the man chosen to replace the injured Stuart Broad for the second Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo.
Broad was forced to fly home on Friday with a calf injury leaving England needing to fill a fast-bowling slot as they aim to level the series and cling onto their No. 1 Test ranking.
Finn, who has taken 50 wickets in 12 Tests, has endured a frustrating time on the sidelines of the five-day team despite consistently impressive one-day form against India and Pakistan.
Since being dropped after the third Ashes Test in Perth he has played just one more match, against Sri Lanka at Lord's.
Despite not yet playing a Test during England's overseas campaigns in 2012 Finn hasn't been short of bowling.
He was the stand-out performer during the 5-0 one-day whitewash against India, taking eight wickets.
