England Test fast bowler Steven Finn duly completed his comeback match for the Performance Programme, which ended with an innings-and-193-run win over a DY Patil Academy XI today.

Leg-spinner Scott Borthwick took six wickets on the final day, as the hosts were bowled out for just 87.

Finn, who took four for 50 two days ago as he seeks to prove his fitness after a thigh strain in time to push for a place in the third Test against India in Kolkata next week, again bowled well this morning.

While he finished wicketless in seven overs, though, Borthwick took six for 38 and Surrey seamer Stuart Meaker three for eight.

The England and Wales Cricket Board confirmed afterwards that Finn will travel on to Kolkata with the Test squad tomorrow.

Meaker, who was called up as cover for the tall Middlesex seamer at the start of this month, will stay with the EPP in Mumbai.
