Mohali: Oct 19, 2011

England pacer Steven Finn put up a brave front in the face of adversity and said that the visitors are confident of turning things around in the five-match ODI series against India, despite trailing 0-2.

Whitewashed in all formats of the game in England earlier this summer, India came out as wounded tiger in the return series, billed as ‘Payback series’, and defeated Alastair Cook’s men with consummate ease in the first two ODIs in Hyderabad (by 126 runs) and Delhi (by eight wickets).

But the lanky fast bowler issued a warning, saying it would be a big mistake to count them off just yet and cited examples to support his claims.

“India played well in the last couple of games. We were probably outplayed. We are 0-2 down in the series. We were in the same position against Sri Lanka earlier this summer but we came back to win the series 3-2. So there is belief in the camp that we can come back and win this series,” Finn said ahead the third ODI between the two sides at the PCA stadium.

“We have nothing to lose. We are playing against the world champions in their own conditions. These next three games we will leave nothing in the dressing room. We have full belief that we can win these three games.

“We are confident that we can win these three games. We have been outplayed in the last two games but they are gone, they are past now,” he added.

Finn also admitted that his eyes lit up after he saw the grass on offer at the Mohali track, and believed tomorrow’s match is England’s best chance of forcing a comeback. (PTI)
