England bowler Steven Finn prepared to wait for chance

England fast bowler Steven Finn admits he has "paid the price" for not bowling very well in Australia last year, but says he hopes to do himself justice when he gets another chance in the team.

Despite impressing with his one-day form, Finn has not played a Test since June last year and says that, although it is disappointing not to be playing, he is prepared to wait for his opportunity.

The 22-year-old was talking ahead of England's eight-week tour of Dubai and Abu Dhabi where they will play a three-Test series against Pakistan .
