The Director of Cricket at Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club believes the 'irreplaceable' nature of Graeme Swann is one of the reasons the spinner was selected for the first three games in Australia, despite his claims today that he isn't fully fit.
Graeme Swann's announcement that he is to retire from first class cricket has received mixed reaction. Swann has said his arm has not felt 'quite right' since his operation earlier this year. Some have criticised him for playing in this series if he knew he was not 100% fit.
Mick Newell says the selectors probably had no choice but to select him, because has has previously been 'irreplaceable'.
