Lol at the underrating of Hauritz in this thread. Someone said there are three better spinners in Australia - name them please.
I'm not saying he's better than Swann or Harris, although I think he outbowled Swann in the Ashes.
But to say that he's not deserving of comparison to them, or is clearly massively inferior is wrong imo.
And Aussie somehow got confused on the point of whether Hauritz deserved his spot ahead of the potential fourth specialist quick in the Australian team with the question of how he compares to Harris and Swann
Dunno. They were pretty similar for mine, you could argue that either were more effective. But pre-Ashes expectations of them were so vastly different that Hauritz's performances appeared better and Swann's worse. England played Hauritz so, sooo much worse than Australia played Swann so it's not the fairest comparison, but I guess we can only judge them on how they did the task they were each presented with.
