Video - Maybe We Have Our Noses In Front - Finn

England fast bowler Steven Finn says that honours are more or less even after an enthralling opening day's play in the 2013 Ashes series on which 14 wickets fell.

Finn, who removed Shane Watson and Ed Cowan late in the day to leave Australia at 75 for four in reply to England's 215, says England may just hold the upper hand.

"I think it's pretty even at the moment, maybe we may have our noses in front, it's a very, very tight battle at the moment," he said.

England lost their last four wickets for just two runs and were without Stuart Broad in the final session after he was struck on the shoulder while batting.

Finn is hopeful that his fellow fast bowler will be fit to take the field on day two.

"He got hit on the shoulder and I think it's a bit sore, but to the extent of the damage, I don't know," Finn said.

"He'll receive treatment overnight and he'll come back tomorrow and we'll see how it is, but we're very hopeful that he'll be fit for tomorrow."
