Hyderabad: Lanky pacer Steven Finn and portly left-arm spinner Samit Patel are confident that they will be able to make significant contribution to help England win the five-match ODI series against India.

"It is an exciting opportunity for us to play in India and I hope that I can contribute for my team in order to win this series," the right-arm fast bowler Finn said during an open session ahead of the first ODI against India on October 14.

Finn who is expected to be in Alastair Cook`s scheme of things in the absence of premier bowlers Stuart Broad and James Anderson wants to make full use of the opportunities provided.

For Patel, who was a part of the squad that was blanked 0-5 in 2008 feels that winning the series will be a "massive achievement" for the side.

Medium pacer Chris Woakes said, “I am very excited about the series. It is a great opportunity not just for me but for England to try and beat India in their own country although we know it is going to be tough."
