    Reckon you were suckered into it TBH. I would have tried to take Goughy to 45.

    Nah, I was confident that Swann would average mid 30s for the series.

    And for that kind of over-confidence you pay the price

    Seems like he tries too hard does Swann, every delivery is a variation or something different and he's almost the opposite of Monty Panesar in that sense. That said, all of the left handed struggled against him throughout the series, he is difficult to play because he gets each ball to turn to different extents and always has the slips interested. However, because he's constantly trying to vary his flight, drift and turn he ends up bowling a number of deliveries that are half trackers or too full and releases the pressure.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!
