Swann backs spin twin Panesar

England's Graeme Swann tells BBC Sport's Joe Wilson that fellow off-spinner Monty Panesar as a "great bowler" as the Sussex left-armer put himself in contention for the First Test with eight wickets in the England's warm-up win over Pakistan Cricket Board XI.

The 32-year-old admits to joking with Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal about the 'mystery' ball that his opponent has claimed he will unveil in this series.

Swann, ranked third in the ICC Test bowling rankings, talks of England's plan to target batting "lynchpin" Younis Khan believing that success against the 34-year-old right-hander will put pressure on the rest of the Pakistan top order.
