    In short, he's distinctly average

    However, around the wicket, he's a decidedly different proposition because his arm is no longer past the perpendicular and he gets drift and spin > domination of lefties

    Anyway, as I've said before, Swann is overrated because he's compared to Giles/Panesar whilst Hauritz is underrated because he has huge shoes to fill
    Bugger all spin

    I'm sure Hauritz would have similar figures, he looks so much more dangerous to the lefties because the ball is spinning away.

    There are spinners who have dominated India over a series. Murali twice, Mendis and Saqlain have done it.

    Actually yeah, Mendis had them crushed and embarrassed. Swann would be the first in a little while.

    I meant at home. Yes, Medis really dominated and Murali has done well in SL.

    I'd definitely take Hauritz in front of the current version of Harris, who has been particularly toothless of late.

    I can understand that you don't rate Hauritz, but to rate him behind Harris? Paul Harris has been horrible for well over a year, wouldn't be a shock to see South Africa drop him.

    The best of Harris is still better than Hauritz, even if as jack said he has looked a bit flat since he took that 5 wicket haul @ Centurion vs ENG last winter, which is under a year ago.

    The best of Harris has taken 5 wicket hauls againts good opposition on wearing or 5th day wickets. Hauritz is yet to do so, so Harris is slightly better still ATS.

    I don't think Harris deserves to be called a spinner. Slow left arm wide down the leg side bowler might be more appropriate.

    Ha, ha! wait for the Raina vs Swann drama. Raina is probably the best left hander against spin ATM.

    It's quite obvious that Swann>Hauritz, now it's just getting ridiculous.

    Basically the only reason the Hauritz argument gathered any momentum AFAICS is because Swann bombed at Cardiff where Hauritz did well. Nevermind that Swann bowled England to victory twice in the rest of the series or anything.

    But yeah, I'd be interested to see anyone still maintaining Hauritz is the better bowler.

    Hauritz is better. Swann's a pom.

    To GIMH, Swann also bombed at Birmingham. Hauritz was the better spinner in that series.
