London: Athletes dedicating wins to their families, friends and even pets is quite common, but flamboyant England off-spinner Graeme Swann has dedicated the ODI series triumph over India to the London Zoo because he happened to have a good time there.
Swann has a reputation of the being resident funny-man of the English cricket team and he lived up to it with his latest tweet.
After the rain-hit tied match against India gave England a winning 2-0 lead in the five-match series, Swann went out with his family to the London Zoo.
"I dedicate the series win to London zoo. Had a great time there with Wilf and Mrs Swann yesterday," Swann tweeted.
England have had a superb run against India, whitewashing the visitors 4-0 in the Test series which took place before the ODIs.
The English had also beaten Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men in the only Twenty20 match that was played before the one-dayers, the first of which was rained out. England won the next two games, before the rain-hit penultimate match at Lord's on Sunday ended in a tie.
The last match of the series will be played in Cardiff on Friday.
