England spinner Graeme Swann has urged the team to "rebuild" as he announced his immediate retirement from cricket.

The 34-year-old has taken only seven wickets during this winter's Ashes series defeat and has ruled himself out of the rest of the tour in Australia.

He told journalists that he had "half expected" the tour to be his last for England and that his "body doesn't like playing five-day cricket any more".
