Profile

Good things come to those who wait. Graeme Swann made his England debut as a raw 20-year-old in 2000, in a nondescript one-day international in Bloemfontein, but it was a brief foray into the top level. Eight years later, having learnt his trade on the county scene with Northamptonshire and then Nottinghamshire, his Test debut came against India, at Chennai, and from that point he never looked back, becoming one of England's greatest spinners.

Timeline
    • April 17, 1998
      Destroyed on debut
      • Having impressed through the stages of age-group cricket, Graeme Swann makes his first-class debut in Northamptonshire's first Championship match of the 1998 season, against Surrey at The Oval. 24 days past his 19th birthday a young Swann keeps flighting the ball up at Ally Brown, who carts him for repeated sixes in a 73-ball century. Swann ends with the bruising figures of 1 for 91 from 13 overs.
    • July 14, 1998
      Maiden first-class ton
      • Having chipped in with useful scores through the season, Swann has a monster performance against Leicestershire at Grace Road. He falls eight short of a hundred in the first innings, but, batting at number eight, makes 111 in the second.
    • August 16, 1999
      England calling
      • After a solid second season and a good finish, particularly in one-day cricket, 21-year-old Swann is called up to the England squad for the final Test of the summer. He doesn't play and England lose the match and series to New Zealand to become the worst ranked side in the world.
