London: Former England player Alec Stewart has said that dropping Graeme Swann from the third Ashes Test in Perth could help the team.

According to the BBC, Stewart said that it was bitterly disappointing to see England receive another heavy beating in the second Ashes Test to go 2-0 down in the series.

The defeat leaves England in a desperately difficult situation, with just three days to try to recover and regroup before the third Test in Perth, a venue where they have lost on each of their last six visits, Stewart said.

One option they should seriously consider is leaving out the spinner from the final 11 and playing a four-man seam attack, which would mean no Graeme Swann or Monty Panesar, Stewart added.
