England pacer Steven Finn believes his side will be able to pull off a remarkable win in the third and final Test against South Africa, despite being reduced to 16 for two in chase of 346 to win.

England need a further 330 runs to win on the final day of the Lord s Test, and level the three-match Test series 1-1 and keep the No 1 spot in ICC Test rankings.

“We’ve got a great opportunity to assert ourselves on South Africa on the fifth morning and we really do believe we can win this game,” Finn said.

“Later in the day we could have batsmen well set against a tired attack with an older ball. We have that belief in the dressing room and it’s up to the batsmen to knuckle down,” Finn was quoted as saying by Sportal.

“We’ll be dealing with a ball that is 15 overs old and the two guys that are in have performed fantastically well for England for a long time,” he said.

“We’re playing to level a series against a team that have played good cricket against us. We want to win tomorrow and we believe we can,” Finn added.
