Well... suffice it to say I think it would be, quite a bit better.
Agree to disagree you might say.
I think Horrie deserves to play in the 1st Test. There is nothing wrong with his Test record -
Four Tests with 14 wickets @ 31 apiece.
He also has an economy rate of a mere 2.69 (Australia have missed miserly bowlers since Warne and McGrath retired).
Furthermore, his confidence is up after his outstanding ODI performances against Pakistan.
People should look at these facts rather than their perceptions of Hauritz.
Plus, it would be madness to not take a specialist spinner into a Test played on a slow wicket which takes turn.

Well he'll have a chance to stake a reasonable claim here, given we'll be bowling last.

If he plays, and they then pick Lee over Clark, I'll catch the next plane over and nut some bastard.
