England's Graeme Swann celebrates after dismissing India's Suresh Raina, not pictured, on the fourth day of the third Test match at the Edgbaston cricket ground, Birmingham.

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 being resident funnyman of the English cricket team and he lived upto 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 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.
