England off-spinner spinner Graeme Swann has been awarded a benefit by his county Nottinghamshire for the 2013 season.
Swann joined Nottinghamshire from Northamptonshire in 2005 and has since become a regular in all forms of the game for England. In 46 Test matches Swann has taken 192 wickets at an average of 29.58.
Swann also contributes some handy runs with the bat and has passed 1000 Test match runs. The right-hander has scored 4 first class centuries in domestic cricket in England. The former Northamptonshire player has also featured in 79 one-day internationals.
Speaking about his benefit year Swann said: “Next year will be a busy year with the Ashes defence on English soil and the Champions Trophy. I’m honoured that the Notts committee have seen fit to reward me with a benefit year.”
