Really sad to report that Steven Finn will return to the UK within the next 48 hours as he has been cruelly ruled out of the remainder of the Ashes series with a knee injury. 

After receiving scans it was discovered that Steven has torn the cartilage in his left knee, meaning that he will be able to play no further part in the tour. The injury was picked up at a training session last week in Perth.

After returning to the UK Finn will meet a knee specialist to ascertain whether an operation is required.

England will name Finn's replacement for the tour in the near future.
