Steven Finn wants to forget the poor showing against India quickly.
England fast bowler Steven Finn is keen to banish the memories of his team’s disastrous performance against India as they head into the ICC World T20 Super Eights.

Sunday’s 90-run defeat in Colombo represented England’s heaviest loss in T20I cricket and also showed up their flaws against spin in vivid detail.

With both teams having already qualified for the next phase, England could at least take some consolation from getting an opportunity to put things right quickly.

That starts on Thursday (September 27) with their opening Super Eight match against West Indies in Pallekele.

Finn insists there will be no hangover from their last match when the tournament begins in earnest.

"We don't have to do anything different than we've done," said Finn. "We've had one bad game – we know that – but we move on from it. We brush it under the carpet; we learn from our mistakes, and we get better from it."

England’s other Group A opponents are Sri Lanka and New Zealand as they bid to retain the title they won in the Caribbean in 2010.
