Only just lost the bet. Goughy now has control of my avatar, bet lasts 1 month from the moment my avatar changes.

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


International Coach
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.
