London - England fast bowler Steven Finn is hoping to impress the selectors during the two-match one-day series against Ireland after being left out of the Champions Trophy squad.

Mark Wood, Liam Plunkett, David Willey, Jake Ball, Chris Woakes and Ben Stokes will lead the England attack in next month's tournament on home soil.

"These matches 9(against Ireland) are an opportunity," Finn told reporters. "They are going to be hard fought... and they are an opportunity for me to remind England that I am still there are ready to go if they need me at any stage."

Finn, 28, was a regular in England's test side last year but missed parts of the season through injury.

"At the moment I am in and out and that is something that just happens as you go through your career," Finn said.

"You will have peaks and troughs in form and when you are on the periphery of England all the time, you just have to deal with the disappointments, which sometimes can be hard to take — it is just the way it goes."

The two one-dayers against Ireland will be played on Friday and Sunday
