I'm devastated to miss out on England's shot at success: Woakes

The paceman bowled just two overs at the start of hosts England s eight-wicket opening win over Bangladesh at the Oval on Thursday before suffering a side strain that has ruled him out of the rest of a tournament featuring the world s top eight one-day worldwide teams.

The 28-year-old Finn, who has 102 wickets from 69 one-dayers, will be expected to ease England's pace concerns with Woakes unavailable, Jake Ball struggling and Ben Stokes's problematic knee preventing the all-rounder from bowling spells at full throttle.

The Middlesex fast bowler could directly enter the starting lineup to face New Zealand on Tuesday. The pacer bowled only two overs at The Oval before leaving the field after complaining of severe pain in his left side.

"We ve had our eyes on the Champions Trophy for a while now as a team and we were coming into the tournament in good form".

As with his fellow Yorkshire seamer Ryan Sidebottom before him - in England's 2010 ICC World Twenty20 campaign, their sole tournament victory to date in a global event - this summer's Champions Trophy may prove the culmination of an admirably resilient career. "You've got to turn it around quickly now and control what you can control". I don't want to set a target to come back, I want to take it day-by-day and build it back up to return as soon as possible.

Speaking on Friday after being ruled out, Woakes said: "More than anything, it's really frustrating".

However, he claimed the wicket of Shakib Al Hasan the Bangladesh innings stuttered to a close, Plunkett picking up his fourth wicket in the final over. It's going to be a good challenge.

Meanwhile, England's batting mainstay Joe Root's elegant century Bangladesh Thursday will reinforce the belief that sound technique is a pre-requisite for success across all formats.

Finn was part of the three-match one-day series in West Indies during March which were his first ODIs in 18 months. But we know we've done it in the past and Jason has performed against the Indias, the Australias, the big teams - so everyone is confident. We need to identify the mistakes we did while bowling and we need to rectify them and make sure next game we are ready.
