40W21W - Call ME bland will you, Alison Mitchell?

Yesterday Grayahamemem Swann became the second human person in all of humanity in the universe of intergalactic hyperspace to take 2 wickets in their first test over. He was the 1st person for about 40 minutes, then TMS remembered Richard Johnson (but then that was at home to the Zimbabwegians, so hardly counts) Certainly a very impressive feat, especially from a spinner who has been the over looked second spinner for a number of years, principally through the actions of Duncan Fletcher. It's been many a person who has said that Swann just isn't cut out for the test arena, being too bits-and-pieces-y, and it'll be interesting to see what will happen after the next test and the sub-continent is a memory again. With Pieterson seemingly liking the idea of bowling himself as a 2nd spinner once in a while it's hard to see how he will justify his place. Indeed, he's *officially* in for Broad in the first India test, what happens if he's back for the 2nd one? Personally I'd reckon on Jimmy sitting out instead...

In the mean time... Caption competition anyone?*


* Excluding Ceci... you know what to do...

Is Swanny inviting Ishant Sharma into the boxing ring, a la Hayden?

Swanny challenges YellowMonkey to a bout of fisting after reading Spiggy's blog.

Swanny done is proud after Mendis got ankle knack.

This pic makes me feel a bit weird just by looking at it. Is he ok ?
