Swann gets all-clear
Graeme Swann expects to be fit for England's third npower Test against India at Edgbaston.
The second match of the series at Trent Bridge was littered with injuries and, while the tourists have confirmed Yuvraj Singh (broken finger) and Harbhajan Singh (abdominal strain) have been ruled out of the series, Swann has provided England with some good news.
The spin bowler was struck on the left hand while batting and initial scans suggested there may be a break.
But further assessment has shown no major damage and he will be available for duty as the hosts look to take a 3-0 lead in Birmingham.
Swann told Sky Sports News: "I've had another X-ray on the hand just to check and it's not serious.
"There's a little bother in there but nothing to affect my preparations.
"It might affect my batting in the nets beforehand but that will just stop me facing a few bouncers from our boys."
