Graeme Swann has been named as England's Most Valuable Player over the winter, according to the ranking system used by the Professional Cricketers' Association.

Swann's 10-wicket haul against Sri Lanka earlier this month helped England to a first Test win in five matches and took his tally to 39 wickets in all formats.

Swann held off Kevin Pietersen, who scored 151 as England levelled the two-Test series with Sri Lanka at 1-1, to win the FTI MVP award.

Swann has previously been England's MVP twice before - after the tours to South Africa and Bangladesh in 2009-10 and following the 2010 English summer.

The draw in Colombo - in which Swann finished with match figures of 10 for 181 - also ensured England retained their No. 1 Test ranking for a while longer.
