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.

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.
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.

RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
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?
