G.P. Swann 5-62 v PakistanBack to boards

Graeme Swann made the Lord’s Honours Boards for the first time when he took a five-wicket haul during England’s victory over Pakistan in the summer of 2010.

After England posted a total of 446 all out during their first innings, Swann showcased his talents with the ball when he took four wickets for just 12 runs during Pakistan’s reply, narrowly missing out on that Honours Boards place as the tourists succumbed to a disappointing 74 all out.

With Pakistan forced to follow on, Swann was determined to not miss out on a place in Lord’s folklore, claiming the wickets of Salman Butt, Azhar Ali, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz and then the final wicket of the match, Mohammad Asif to earn that spot on the iconic boards.

Swann’s overall match figures read nine wickets for 74 runs as England sealed a comfortable victory, winning the Test match by an innings and 225 runs.
