England bowler confirms that he will be fit to face Pakistan in the opening Test on Tuesday.

England spinner Graeme Swann has confirmed that he will be fully fit to face Pakistan in the first Test on Tuesday.

Swann had a scan on his thigh before England's final warm-up victory over a Pakistan Cricket Board XI in which he claimed two wickets, and has assured fans that he is ready to play in the upcoming Test.

"I was a bit nervous going into the last warm-up game, because my thigh felt like a 32-year-old's rather than a 22-year-old's," said the bowler.

"But it managed to get through and felt great by the end of the game. So, touch wood, I'll be 100% fit for the first Test."

England are currently ranked as the best Test team in the world.
