Graeme Swann's superb performances over the last few months have seen him surge up the ICC World Rankings to number 3.
Swann claimed 9 wickets in the 2nd Test Match against South Africaat Durban as England cruised to a victory by an innings and 98 runs.
Swann has also been in superb form with the bat in the 1st Test Match he smashed a quick fire 85.
England managed to cling on and draw that game even though they were 9 wickets down.
A very similar situation occurred at the Ashes this year, where England clung on to draw the 1st match in Cardiff before winning the 2nd Test Match at Lord's.
Australia did bounce back and win the 4th Test Match at Headingley but England had the last laugh by clinching the series with a victory in the 5th Test Match at the Oval.

It was the 2nd time in 4 years that Australia had won the Ashes.
