Steve Finn claim three wickets as England take on South Africa in the third test
1:37pm Thursday 16th August 2012 in Sport
Watford-born Steven Finn has taken three wickets for just 22 runs in the first session of the final Test against South Africa.
England need to win the last Test in the series to remain as the world number one side.
The former West Herts fast bowler was called into the team for the second Test of the three match series and was judged to have done enough to keep his place with Tim Bresnan coming out for off-spinner Graeme Swann.
Finn first removed opening batsmen Alviro Petersen before bowling the dangerous Hashim Amla for 13. Amla has been seen as England’s biggest target after he scored an imperious 311 not out in the first Test - a game that Finn was not selected for.
The 23-year-old then removed Jacques Kallis on review. Television replays showed that Kallis was caught down the leg-side giving Finn his third wicket in two overs.
Earlier in the day James Anderson removed Captain Graeme Smith for 14.
South Africa were 65 for four at lunch.
