GRAHAM SWANN – HITS CENTURY IN ASHES OPENER
Graham Swann, the English off spinner, is excited by his early Ashes form after get spanked for a century in the first innings of the first test. The off spinner had arrived in the country as the world’s leading spin bowler, according to the British Press, and within 4 overs he had shown he will be cannon fodder for the Aussie batsmen this summer. Speaking exclusively after the match he was surprisingly upbeat about his performance, seeming to think he actually played well.
“Obviously to start the Ashes with a century is exciting stuff. I have dreamed of getting a century in an Ashes game and to do it in the opening game really sets me up for the series. You want to play your best, against the best and I think I did that today.”
When reminded that his job was actually to take wickets Swann had no comment and ended the interview.
