[Richard]Well, AFAIC, Hauritz is utterly incapable of bowling like a Test-class spinner. His Test career thus far has ind33d been wrought with the fickleness of utter luck, eliciting less than satisfactory strokes from players who are five yards and a bit short of Test-class. That ind33d suits the intricacies of the situations in which Hauritz is present, because he himself is a spinner of real, utter horror. It will gladden me to see his average soar like a helium balloon after these outings.[/Richard]
Both Swann and Hauritz (and Duminy!) have eclipsed Harris lately. Swann is probably still a bit ahead, but there's not much wrong with Hauritz right now, except he could do with a little more of that turn which collected Faisal Iqbal's stumps. Swann is probably more aggressive and more convincing on turners, even though I still don't think a flat deck gets in the way of Hauritz all that much.
Feels ****ing good to be a fan of Swann and Hauritz right now. So, so good. [/smug]

Yeah, welldone Hauritz on taking wickets against a ridiculously fragile Pakistan batting line ups at home.
Hauritz has done well and fair play to him but if you really want to use stats to validate him being better than Swann you're in dreamland. West Indies/Pakistan at home is not really comparable to South Africa away hey?
Not to worry though, Swann has Bangas away then Bangas to home and Pakistan at home coming up so we'll see how he goes there.

RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
Swann may end up better than Hauritz some may think he already is but as far as cricket goes Hauritz is the better bowler. We all saw what happened to Monty Englands last great spin bowler.
How is Monty relevant to Swann at all?
You may as well say you all saw what happened to Bryce McGain.

Eoin Morgan on being given a rice cooker for being Man of the Match in a Dhaka Premier Division game.
More importantly how the **** is Hauritz better than Swann?
It's not often you remove a bowlers average when playing on some of the flattest decks around that his overall average increases.
I dont ever recall there being much hype with McGain, well not in Australia but I suppose it may have been big news in England.
Using stats to compare bowlers is facile at the best of times, but when the samples are so small it's pretty much ********. If you think hauritz's better stats make him a better bowler then that's up to you but anyine whose watched them both bowl and is neither English nor Australian will tell you that Swann is the better bowler.
Yeah, why would we drop the potential line, Swann is 30
