Allow me to introduce the Australian cricket side's new slip formation. As you can see, they are now favouring a four-slip cordon as they are not very good at catching yet but their training is continuing .
Took this from the tv toady at The WACA, Perth, Western Australia, a venue known not only as The Graveyard of The English but also as the native habitat of the black swan (much as supermarket carparks for the pied wagtail over here).
The Swan River runs through Perth but no-one knows why it is named as such; this is because the Australians are very stupid .
Anyway, it's good to know that black swans are thriving in their protected habitat, just offside of a right-handed batsman .

That's right - Graeme Swann was a spinner for Notts and England and Swanny is now part of the BT commentary team along with Vaughany, Ricky, Gillie, Boyks, Ali and Flem .
Don't think the river in question was named after him though.
