    Did someone just try to use Misbah as an example of someone who's not a tail-ender

    Great catch for MoYo's scalp, tbf. Neither exactly classical spinners' wickets tho. Misbah just carved a wide one to backward point, didn't he?

    Hauritz did very well and credit to him, but Pakistan architects of their own ruin IMHO. Yousuf suitably pissed off with himself talking to Tubby afterwards.

    I think you'll find they contributed a fair amount to their dismissal in both instances though.

    Hauritz's strength is that he thinks about the game, understands his limitations, and sticks to the task at hand. He doesn't often seem to get flustered, which is admirable, given the amount of criticism and disregard he gets from the opposition. However I think Swann is a better attacking spinner, more likely to make things happen in a tight situation. As far as the best, we wouldn't even be having this debate if Amit Jaggernauth was around.

    Tbf, you could argue that outside the subcontinent the lot bar Umar are tailenders.

    I like all three as bowlers, reckon they get far too much crap. Especially when rubbish like Panesar got so much hype and he'll be far better than Vettori and other top left arm spinners etc and where is he now?

    Hauritz has surprised me I admit, but good on him for making more of his test career than many thought he would.

    That MoYo catch in slow motion was amazing. The last few Hauritz wickets were lower order outfield catches, but setting the ball in motion with those two were.

    Well it looks like Swann is a better bowler who is more attacking and more skilled than Hauritz and Swann has done it at the same strike rate, econ and average as someone who is not as good as him.

    Hauritz does appear to have the metal for test cricket though.

    I think it's important to factor in who the stats are supporting GIMH. You can't just take them at face value you know

    I'm hoping Swann gets dropped before the return Ashes series this year myself. With those choppers of his, if he takes a swag of wickets in the blinding Aussie sunshine, the resultant smiles could result in the worse cases of melanoma we've seen in the country for years. (I had no idea where to put these ****ing commas!)

    Are there any non-Australian posters who think Hauritz is better than Swann?
