England will attack, vows Swann

Graeme Swann says there is no chance of England adopting a cautious approach when the final Test begins in India on Thursday.

Back-to-back victories mean the tourists need only a draw to protect a 2-1 lead and become the first visitors in eight years to win a Test series in India.

Local reports suggest the Nagpur pitch will be less spin-friendly than those in Mumbai and Kolkata, but senior spinner Swann's attitude will remain the same.

He said: "I'm sure India will come out fighting - they have to win the game.

"Equally, I'm sure we'll approach it with attack as our best form of defence - I think that's what it's proven to be over the last couple of games.

"It's a lot more satisfying as a team to finish the job off. We came out here as a team to win the series, and that's still what we're trying to do.

"The last Test of the series, if you know the result hangs on it, is normally an exciting one."
