Wickets justify attack balance - Finn

England fast bowler Steve Finn says the fact five of the six Sri Lanka wickets on the first day of the second Test went to seamers justifies the selection of Tim Bresnan ahead of spinner Monty Panesar.

Sri Lanka finished the first day on 238-6, with seamers James Anderson, Bresnan and Finn joining spinner Graeme Swann as wicket takers.

Middlesex bowler Finn has returned to the side in place of the injured Stuart Broad and believes England bowled well, putting it down to their patience and focus on bowling in "partnerships".
