Blow for England as Finn heads home


England have called up seamer Chris Jordan to replace pace bowler Steven Finn, who’s been ruled out of the series with Pakistan here in the UAE. Finn has a stress injury in his left foot and will return to the UK for treatment. He claimed 4-16 in the second tour match against Pakistan A before being ruled out of the current series opener in Abu Dhabi. "Gutted to be heading home from this UAE tour," he tweeted. Jordan, meanwhile, has taken 21 wickets from eight Tests, the most recent of which was the defeat by West Indies in Barbados in May.
