Panesar rejects talk of Swann rivalry
- From the section Cricket
Monty Panesar says his spin partner Graeme Swann helped him to a five-wicket haul on day one of England's match against the Sri Lanka Board XI.
Swann failed to take a wicket on Thursday, but Panesar says his team-mate creates "pressure" at the other end, and he feels "guided" by his level of experience.
The Sussex bowler took 5-37 as England dismissed the home side for 169,, with Stuart Broad having to withdraw after tripping on a boundary rope and spraining his ankle.
