Graeme Swann looking forward to 'huge' England-India series

Graeme Swann says that only an Ashes series can compete with the prestige of a summer series against India, which begins at Lord's on Wednesday.

The spinner goes on to defend the five-day game, believing it to be the truest form of cricket and says it will stand the test of time.

Swann is also full of praise for India's batsman Sachin Tendulkar and identifies with British Asians who will be supporting India during the coming months.
