Finn not playing the ODIs v Australia

I'm not sure I agree with the media take out that Australia are being denied a look at Finn because England don't want Australia to face him prior to the Ashes. If you look at his bowling for Middlesex in one-dayers last year (admittedly with only a relatively small number of overs to go from), his economy rate was nearly 6 an over. And in Twenty20 which might give an indication of how he'd bowl at the death, his economy rate was 8.5.

So he hasn't exactly taken the County one day or Twenty20 game by storm - why would he jump ahead of others in the queue for the ODI team when we have a World Cup to prepare for next year?
