OTD| Former England fast bowler Steven Finn was born in 1989

On this day, back in 1989, former English fast bowler Steven Finn was born. Notably, the star cricketer was one of the tallest bowlers in the history of cricket and went on to take the game to the epitome of the level with his magnificent skills for England. In addition, the right-arm pacer was the youngest bowler, as he was just 16 years old when he made his debut for Middlesex.

However, the great seamer has represented his home side in all formats and burst into prominence back in 2009 owing to his solid performances. The star bowler has played 36 and 69 Test and ODI games, respectively, and went on to score 125 and 102 wickets, respectively. Meanwhile, the legendary cricketer has played around 164 first-class games and went on to pick up 570 wickets with the best bowling figure of 9/37 in his career.

The star cricketer has boosted his side attack alongside Stuart Broad, Ryan Sidebottom, and Graham Onions and went on to beat some of the toughest opponents in his career. In addition, Finn also performed exceptionally well against Bangladesh back in 2010, where he ended up with figures of 9/187, bagging his first Man of the Match award in Test cricket.

Meanwhile, Steven Finn always performed well against arch-rivals Australia, as he went on to score 14 wickets in three Test matches, including the career-best 6/125 at the Gabba in Brisbane. Moreover, the legendary cricketer also went on to show his form in the Ashes and single-handedly contributed to some of the wins for his home side.

As the legendary cricketer turns 35, Steven Finn’s remarkable journey from an aspiring young cricketer to a renowned player for England is a testament to his unwavering dedication, extraordinary skill, and numerous accomplishments. His outstanding abilities and tenacity are evident in his ability to adapt to an array of situations, produce remarkably good results, and make a significant contribution to the English team’s victories. Finn’s extraordinary journey continues to inspire cricket fans everywhere, leaving a lasting impression on the game while setting new standards for future generations to strive for.
