Graeme Swann's grandmom blames 'nasty' Aussies for player's 'shock' retirement
According to News.com.au, Mina Swann said that she was saddened by her grandson's retirement from cricket and believes something 'nasty' happened.
The 89-year-old had one Australian player in mind but just like her grandson took aim at an unnamed member of his own team for being up their own backsides, she refused to name names, the report said.
Swann started playing cricket in the garden of his grandma's home in Blyth, the report added.
He starred in three victorious Ashes series, and was the brains behind the famous Sprinkler dance, which became a hit with players and fans alike, the report further said.
