However, the notion that it's not possible to get a ball that, for no apparent reason, doesn't swing, is plain wrong and to support it suggests one isn't a bowler. I've had it several times and I've not played that many games compared to those in the Sky box. It may or may not have happened with the first new-ball England used, but it certainly can happen.
I think Swann was whinging about it at the preser as wel, FWIW.
Anyway, loving Boycs on TMS pre-lunch absolutely launching into the England batting.
