Well, I doubt Swannie of Harris would have held on to that catch that (arguably) turned the match into Australia's favour. 2 Michelle's for Haurie in the last 2 tests and being Australian give him the edge to me :P
Thought Harris had a shocker today, ftr. Duminy outbowled him and then some.

I'm still taking Swanneh, but Hauritz is doing a fine job in the role Australia want for a spinner to do right now, and he can be very pleased with the way he's got on. Nonetheless, I won't be losing sleep about him next winter.

And if you're not willing to buy that, you can just have watched their respective careers so far to know Swanneh's played on the flattest of flatties.

My opinion on Hauritz this summer has changed a lot and I do rate him as a Tets bowler, the Pakistani batsmen have underestimated him at times and look at what has happened to them. I see him ATM as someone who is getting the most out of his ability as a bowler at Test. Obviously the real acid test will be when/if he comes up against India and Sehwag is in one of his 'moods' where he is smashing all and sundry to all parts of the cricket ground. Whether or not he will hold his nerve when Sehwag is thinking "letz hitz sixez' and go for plenty or do what Krejza did and pick up 8 wickets in an innings.
Yeah, I've only ever seen Hauritz really spin one using the rough. However, he gets good bounce, drift and flight, which make him acceptable as a test offie.
Swann just got MOTS in an away series to Saffa in case it passed you by
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
