Swann: I was awful in Australia

Graeme Swann says his bowling was "awful" during England's humiliating Ashes defeat in Australia, and forced him to retire from the sport midway through the tour.

However, the former England spinner, who took 255 wickets in 60 Test matches, said Alastair Cook should continue as captain stating that "no man could have captained us this winter".

Swann, sat alongside England bowler Jimmy Anderson, was speaking to Greg James for 5 live's Not Just Cricket, which airs at 21:00 GMT on Monday.
