Swann Feels Like New


GRAEME SWANN is certain he is 100 per cent fit — and ready for the biggest year of his career.
Spinner Swann was selected by England yesterday for the first time since undergoing his second elbow operation in the space of four years.
He will play against New Zealand in the First Test at Lord’s on Thursday after missing the drawn three-Test series on their patch earlier this year.
Swann, 34, said: “We have an incredible year ahead of us with back-to-back Ashes series and I’m confident the elbow will hold up. It certainly feels good.”
Yorkshire seamer Tim Bresnan — also back from elbow surgery — is named but is likely to be 12th man, while county team-mates Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root come into the middle order.
National selector Geoff Miller said: “We need to improve on our performances in New Zealand.”
