    I know your jesting, but Sehwag's a perfectly good bowler, criminally underused in tests.

    Swann will get towelled here. And he plainly chucks

    Thought Steyn's tour here for SA was the best by a visiting paceman since the halcyon days of the Windies tbh. He was fantastic.

    And Corrin's a ****.

    I can't help thinking that Swann must be every bit as mystified by his explosion onto the world cricket scene at about the age of 30 as the rest of us are. His emergence has been quite incredible. He's a seriously good bowler, a seriously good tailender and a seriously good - well, pretty good - fielder. WAG.

    Is he drug tested regularaly? I mean, come on. An English spinner being good, and becoming good at 30 all of a sudden..

    Something's wrong here. Seriously wrong.

    The scary thing about Steyn on that tour is one got the feeling that he wasn't even at his best, and even then he was superb.

    I just love watching Steyn bowl. The batsman know, the fielders know, everyone knows it's going to be a fast swinging delivery pitching on off. He simply executes it so well and keeps running through top orders. He has reduced fast bowling to it's most fundamental basics and is enjoying so much success.

    If England's pacers do a good job, he doesn't have to average anything spectacular (like Warne did in Ashes 2005) to be very effective. Anything under 30 will be good enough if he steps up and bowls his team to victory in one or two Tests when the wicket starts wearing.

    Yeah, if someone had've told told me three years ago that the best spinner in the world would be an Englishman and an orthodox off-spinner north of thirty to boot I'd have assumed a psychotic episode on their part.

    Steyn is absolutely fantastic. Easily the best bowler in the world right now in tests. The others who can compete either have fitness issues or are cheats. :s

    Swann looks a pretty good bowler IMO but I think he still has a few things left to prove.

    The three clean bowleds Swann got on Wednesday night were fantastic. The guy is just so good to watch.

    This time last year oeople were arguing Hauritz as a better bowler, just seems that after a meh Ashes he has gone from strength to strength
