On the eve of the third ODI here, Finn said that India would make a big mistake by writing them off.
"India played well in the last couple of games. We were probably outplayed. We are 0-2 down in the series. We were in the same position against Sri Lanka earlier this summer but we came back to win the series 3-2. So there is belief in the camp that we can come back and win this series," Finn said at the PCA Stadium.
The 22-year-old Middlesex pacer said England have nothing to lose as they are playing the world champions in their own backyard. "These next three games we will leave nothing in the dressing room. We have full belief that we can win these three games. We are confident that we can win these three games. We have been outplayed in the last two games but they are gone, they are past now," he said.
Finn said the tinge of grass on the Mohali track will boost the confidence of the English team. "Obviously the wicket might change for tomorrow but it looks quite encouraging from the seamers' point of view. There is grass on the wicket but it doesn't necessarily mean it will be a bowling friendly wicket. What we have to do is land the ball on good length and that's going to be our focus," he said.
Finn there is hardly any difference between the two sides in the ongoing series. "India probably had the better knowledge of the conditions. India probably have more exposure to these conditions. When we were preparing we were aware of the conditions that we would face here," he said.
