Anderson, Swann fit for Ashes tour opener

Anderson, Swann fit for Ashes tour opener

Bowlers James Anderson and Graeme Swann have overcome injuries to be included in a strong lineup for the opening match of England's Ashes cricket tour to Australia, a three-dayer against Western Australia state starting Friday.
Paceman Anderson has been troubled by a rib injury and off-spinner Swann by a sore thumb, but both have been passed fit to be included in England's 13-man squad for the match.
Test captain Andrew Strauss will lead a team which will be close to test strength.
