Spinner Swann happy to stand at second slip

London: England off spinner Graeme Swann, who bowled just two overs in his team`s 354-run victory over Pakistan in the first Test at Trent Bridge, is content with the quiet life on the field.

He said: "I`m more than happy to stand at second slip and watch the fast bowlers perform like they did."

"I`m an inherently lazy person so, if I don`t have to bowl very much, then great! Jimmy Anderson was exceptional last week."

"Now we need to make sure we`re on fire again at Edgbaston. I played here a couple of weeks ago for Notts and the ball swung all over the place for Stuart Broad as he took eight wickets," a newspaper quoted Swann, as saying.

Meanwhile, ex-Pakistan skipper Mohammad Yousuf is due to arrive in London today and rush to Birmingham to prepare for the second Test.
