Steven Finn has revealed that he is eager to make a contribution for Middlesex at the beginning of the domestic season.
The England bowler will be available for two County Championship matches against Derbyshire and Surrey respectively but will miss Wednesday's opener with Nottinghamshire.
Finn told Sky Sports News: "It's going to be nice to come back and play for Middlesex, at Lord's especially, and try and contribute something to the start of the season.
"We've got a solid squad of young players and a few more experienced players in our team. We're looking forward to this season, it's going to be good.
"It is important that I start these first two games of the year well for Middlesex; try and take a few wickets, find some rhythm."
The 24-year-old is expected to rejoin the England Test squad in May ahead of the series against New Zealand.
