Swann delighted by England recall

Graeme Swann is targeting a regular spot in Englandís one-day team after being recalled to tour Sri Lanka in October.

The 28-year-old was today named in a 15-man squad to play five One-day Internationals in Sri Lanka, seven years after his one and only appearance for England against South Africa.

The off-spinning all-rounder believes heís playing some of the best cricket of his career and said: ďSometimes things work out for you and Iím delighted to have got the call.

ďAt the start of the season I made it a real goal to get back in the international set-up but Iím not finished yet by any means.

ďIím in the squad but the next aim must be to earn selection in the starting XI. I feel confident about my game and have certainly grown as a cricketer since the tour of South Africa in 2000.Ē

Swann will be joined on the tour by his Notts team-mate Ryan Sidebottom, who was forced out of the ICC World Twenty20 because of a nagging side-strain injury and is continuing his return to fitness at the moment.†
