Ashes 2017-18: England bowler Steven Finn ruled out of tour with injury

Steven Finn has been ruled out of England's Ashes tour after scans showed he has torn his left knee cartilage.The pace bowler, 28, who was added to the squad following Ben Stokes' arrest, was injured in training on Thursday. He will return to the UK in the next 48 hours to meet with specialists and decide whether he requires surgery.
England say they will announce a replacement in due course. Their first Test against Australia begins in Brisbane on 23 November. Before that, the tourists play two warm-up matches against a Cricket Australia XI, the first of which is on Wednesday. Speaking to BBC Sport before the result of Finn's scan was revealed, coach Trevor Bayliss had positive news about Moeen Ali's fitness.

Off-spinning all-rounder Moeen, 30, missed training on Friday with a side injury, but Bayliss said he "will be fine".He added: "We'll probably leave him out of the first game as a precaution, but he'll play the last game before the first Test."
