Graeme Swann has been declared fit ahead of England's third Test against India at Edgbaston, which begins next Wednesday.

The 32-year-old injured his hand while batting in the second Test, although fears that he may have broken a bone have been allayed.

"I've had another x-ray on the hand just to check and it's not serious. There's a little bother in there but nothing to affect my preparations," the Nottinghamshire spinner told Sky Sports News.

"It might affect my batting in the nets beforehand but that will just stop me facing a few bouncers from our boys."

England lead the series 2-0 and will top the ICC world rankings should they beat the tourists in Birmingham.
