Graeme Swann

England Cricketer

Synopsis

Graeme was a key member of the England Test side that claimed world No.1 status at the Oval. Last year he helped retain the Ashes (although the less said about that...) The Notts off spinner has also attracted fans beyond cricket, as lead singer of Dr Comfort and his Lurid Revelations. In Q&A he shares the secrets of sledging.

Biography

As part of the victorious England team who claimed the Ashes back from Australia, Graeme delivered the winning wicket to secure a famous victory.

A hard-hitting batsman and off-break bowler, Graeme debuted for his home Northamptonshire before transferring to Nottinghamshire. After a one-day international against South Africa, he joined the national academy and took 30 wickets during Notts’ championship-winning season.

Graeme became the first English spinner to take 50 wickets in a calendar year. He promptly won consecutive Man of the Match awards against South Africa, cementing third place in the world rankings for bowlers.

The joker of the team, Graeme dishes up the dirt and the secrets of sledging in his after dinner Q&A. He also talks about his other love, his band Dr Comfort and his Lurid Revelations - when he isn’t boasting about it on Twitter.
