Kolkata: While admit that England were thrash in the latest one-day series by India, off-spin bowler Graeme Swann has discarded accusation that the visitors went over the top in sledge of Indian players, even to the coverage of getting personal with a number of of them.
There has been a lot of talk about England's on-field behavior in the five-match series, particularly after MS Dhoni claim some of our sledge was over the top and we were in opposition among ourselves. As for sledging the opposition, I don't think any of our chat has been over the top or special," The Sun quotes Swann, as say.
I know there has been organization battle with a team of India's players and I think cause by persons in our team dislike individuals in their team. We have played India for three months now. You're not at all going to like all 11 blokes in the hostility. These things happen, he added.I can comfort you the commentary and personal abuse Samit Patel receives from the Indian players is far not as good as than anything we've said," said Swann.
We must get better our one-day performance out of the country. We've lost 6-1 in Australia, had a disappointing World Cup and now lost 5-0 here. On recent form away from home, we wouldn't beat the Women's association. And no disrepute to the WI - I'm sure they have some very fine leg-spinners. Lose 10 wickets for 47 runs in the final match were upsetting, said the spinner.
