Swann Wants T20 & ODI Success

England spinner Graeme Swann wants England to maintain their winning ways by beating Australia in the upcoming two T20 matches, followed by seven One Day Internationals.

Both sides will be looking to fine-tune their preparations for the forthcoming World Cup which starts in February.

England pulled off an historic win by retaining the Ashes, winning the series in Australia. The first time this has been achieved for twenty four years, the spinner wants to make put the icing on the cake with a winter to remember by winning the T20 and ODI matches.

"It's nice to win the Ashes, I won't lie to you," said Swann.

"It's been a great tour for us so far and the worst thing for us would be if we stuttered and stopped at the end of the tour.

"We want to go home to 50,000 people at Heathrow cheering us which, if we lose the one-dayers, might be down to about 40,000."

He added: "It's important that we show the good one-day form we've shown recently because we want to be number one in all forms.

"Let's face it we were (ranked) number seven or eight not so long ago and we were garbage.

"We've had some very good series results recently. We beat the Australians at home last year and we won the Twenty20 in Barbados to win that World Cup.

"Both teams have changed quite a bit since then so it will be interesting to see how it plays out." Best Blogger Tips
