to cross one's fingers
Это выражение означает перекрещивание среднего пальца с указательным. Человек, скрещивая пальцы подобным образом, образует ими подобие креста, который отвращает зло. Мы часто держим пальцы скрещенными перед экзаменом или перед важным событием.

Good luck tomorrow! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you. — Удачи тебе завтра! Я скрещу пальцы на счастье.
