Finn ruled out of Australia tour with knee injury

England fast bowler Steven Finn will miss the Ashes series in Australia after medical scans revealed torn cartilage in his left knee.

Finn sustained the injury during practice last week in Perth and had already been ruled out of England’s first two tour matches before the team issued a statement yesterday confirming the paceman would fly home within 48 hours. A tall fast bowler, Finn has taken 125 wickets in 36 tests but has played only two of those matches in Australia, both in 2010. The Ashes series starts on November 23 at the Gabba in Brisbane. England has not named a replacement for Finn, who was called into the squad late when allrounder Ben Stokes was temporarily stood down pending a police investigation into an incident outside a nightclub in September.
