Steven Finn has been given a two week break from the England cricket set-up to make sure he can rest after a tough period, reports BBC Sport

The pace bowler was the only man in the squad of 17 players to not be used at all throughout the Ashes series.

Australia clinched the last test in Sydney in just three days and completed the 5-0 rout on home soil to reclaim the urn.

Middlesex coach Angus Fraser now has his star pace bowler back in his ranks and told BBC Sport: "It can become a job at times rather than the thing you dreamed about as a young cricketer."

Finn had been rumoured to feature early on in the series and his sheer pace could have been lethal for taking wickets.

Mitchell Johnson was by far and away the quickest bowler on the tour and reinvented himself to claim a quite amazing total of 34 wickets throughout the Ashes.

Fraser added: "I think the main thing is that Steven falls back in love with bowling. I've seen bowlers run up in tears before.

"But Steven just needs to love bowling for the sake of bowling again - not to win selection for the next ODI or the first Test of the summer."

England have recently just announced their provisional 30 man squad for the ICC World Twenty20 in March with Kevin Pietersen keeping his place in the side most notably.
