Cricket Betting: Steve Finn said that Australia will not be underestimated

Steve Finn, England paceman, said that there is no chance that England will underestimate the Aussies in the Ashes series this summer, and cricket betting fans can’t wait to see who will win this battle.
The first Test will start next Wednesday at Trent Bridge, and many pundits that follow the cricket odds see trouble in the Aussie side.
Beaten by India 4-0 in a Test series, Australia was unable to escape the group stages at the recent Champions Trophy, and cricket betting fans saw that only three weeks before the Ashes they changed head coaches.
But Finn said: “I think it would be foolish to underestimate the Aussies.
“They are always a very competitive team and have got some excellent cricketers. We can’t allow ourselves to think it is going to be easy, by any stretch of the imagination.
“It doesn’t matter what people are saying outside of the dressing room, all that matters is what is said inside the dressing room and what happens out on the pitch.”
Finn appears to have a battle with Tim Bresnan to have a place with Stuart Broad and James Anderson in England’s seam attack for Trent Bridge.
And he said: “I missed most of the Champions Trophy just by being left out, so I suppose it gives you a bit of extra fire in your belly to make sure you don’t miss out on the big games in the future.
“I was disappointed to miss out on so much of the Champions Trophy but you learn from it and move on, and hopefully I will play a bigger part in this Ashes series.
“Ultimately the most important thing is the team, I want to play as big a part as I can in winning us the Ashes but, if Tim plays ahead of me, then I’d be happy for him.”
Cricket betting fans also learned that Broad is raring to go, as he missed the series’ last three Tests when England won in Australia 3-1 in 2010/11 with very good cricket odds.
“I would be going in all guns blazing even if I had never played an Ashes Test before but I went home after the second Test with a torn abdominal last time,” he said.
“It was heartbreaking to leave that Ashes tour so of course I want to have a big impact on this series.
