If he takes more than 12 wickets in the Ashes then I think they will come at over 40 (Ill have an Avatar bet on that is anyone wants)
Im not saying his action is bad, but it does look a little jerky at times.
I'll take that bet.
Harris in the 6 tests recently against Australia took 24 wickets @ 32.
I rate Harris, I think he's a perfectly decent bowler and IMO there isn't particularly much to choose between Harris and Swann.
So I think Swann's perfectly capable of picking up 15 wickets at around 30-35ish.
