Steve Finn backs England to `rise in key moments` during Ashes series

Sydney: England pace bowler Steven Finn has said that his side`s ability to overcome adversity and deal with pressure was the difference between them and Australia during the earlier Ashes series.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the 3-0 series win to England may not have been a true reflection of how close Australia came in the five-Test series in the UK, but England`s ability to swing momentum in their favour during pivotal moments of a match proved costly for Michael Clarke`s men.

Finn said that Australia actually played some good cricket in the summer, adding that they put England under pressure, but they dealt with it pretty well.

He added that if they can deal with it again, there is no reason why England cannot win again.

Finn also suggested England were confident Matt Prior would be fit to line up in Brisbane on November 21, but if he`s ruled out, reserve wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow will take over the glove work.
