Former England spinner Grame Swann backed Alastair Cook when critics blasted the England skipper following the dismal winter ashes series in Australia.


Swann supported the England captain and said that people had forgotten his victory in India and a triumph at an Ashes series at home recently.

He added that Cook was an excellent captain who has achieved unbelievable results and that if he scored runs then everyone will quickly forget about his failures.

According to Mirror, Swann, who retired during the Ashes series in Australia with a swipe at some of his teammates, reckons Cook will silence doubters when the Tests against Sri Lanka and India start.

The 35-year-old cricketer further attributed that England's inability to win at the Ashes series was because of Australian paceman Mitchell Johnson's 'skewed' perspectives but with the entry of a new coach the English team's techniques could be fixed.
