England have already dropped pace spearhead James Anderson from their squad for the final Test, giving him time to recover from minor niggles.
England coach Andy Flower is keen to preserve his the new-ball pairing before the start of a busy summer which includes one-day series against West Indies and Australia, and Test series against South Africa.
Following the third Test, England play West Indies in three ODIs and one T20, Australia in five ODIs and then South Africa in three Tests, five ODIs and three T20s – all before they travel to Sri Lanka for the defence of their world T20 crown.
According to Zee News, the reason behind this rotation is that Flower is also keen to see how Finn and Onions perform in a match situation.
