London:

England cricketer Graeme Swann has been charged with drink driving, police said on Monday.

The Nottinghamshire off-spinner, ranked the third best Test bowler in the world, was stopped near his home in the West Bridgford area of Nottingham, central England, on April 2.

The 31-year-old will appear before magistrates in Nottingham on August 16.

Swann has been charged with "driving a motor vehicle when his alcohol level was above the limit," a Nottinghamshire Police spokeswoman said.

In May, Swann was named England's cricketer of the year.

He was also named the Man of the Series on England's last two tours, to South Africa and Bangladesh.
