Swann pussies out

After a no ball was bowled in today's England v Australia game today with Graeme Swann at short-leg, Australia had a free hit and the field wasn't allowed to change. I can imagine that short-leg wouldn't be the ideal spot to be for a free hit, but it seems a bit gutless to leg it off the field and leave England with 10 for the free hit delivery! If the ball had gone through where Swann was and England had lost off the last ball he would (I hope/trust) have felt very guilty!

Still, didn't seem to hurt England who won easily despite a slight wobble.
