    AWTA. So much fun, though not so much when it's your own team he's pasting. I love blokes that defy all logic like him.

    Especially when you consider that his FC bowling average is decent rather than wonderful.

    I like the fact that he really tries to bowl the batsman with every delivery. Most unusual for an offy.

    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
    I remember Shane Warne saying that he rated them about equal last summer.

    Needles to say he has gone a bit quiet on that subject since.

    In truth I'm blown away by Swann. I refuse to believe that even the selectors envisged he'd be this good. Some of the wickets he takes are brilliant, just brilliant. The ones against Pakistan's lefties when the ball drifted in at pace then ripped back onto the stumps. I have never seen better from a conventional offy....ever.

    His batting has dipped recently but he his pretty fearless at the crease, willing to play any shot he deems fit at any time. He will score a test century sooner or later.

    I even find myself almost believing he can have an impact in Australia, despite the poor showing of finger spin there in my lifetime and no doubt before. Heart v Mind.

    9/10 chance Aussie players won't know he's improved unless it gets a bit of media attention here.

    The sheer number of revolutions Swann gets is insane. He'd turn it more than a lot of wrist spinners. I just hope the Kookaburra allows him to get the drift too which he's had this summer, if it does he's always going to be well in the game.

    Dale steyn is the best fast bowler currently but is still overrated he plays on helpful tracks more times than other fast bowlers,he has done well in subcontinent in india but again there was help in those matches and he looked as worse as others in rest of the matches.

    Swann is yet to tested if he bowls well to srilankan and india batsman then we can rate him,he is a very good spinner no doubt but still its early.

    It is just a shame there is not more Dale Steyn on Youtube. There seems to be a lot of Waqar Younis and Wasim's top spells from early in their career's and you'd think that there would be more stuff of Steyn in this day and age.

    There is this, though, which, from eye, is the quickest spell I've ever seen.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Why do some people seem to have this arrogance that a spinner has to prove himself against India?
