    Does Nathan Hauritz turn the ball?

    Hey, just wondering guys, does Nathan Hauritz actually turn the ball? Because he is a spinner and have NEVER seen him turn a ball (as in spin). But he's a good bowler though.
    Check out these vids from Youtube and see:

    YouTube - Nathan Hauritz on a hat trick, 30/12/2009.
    YouTube - 2009 Ashes Test - Nathan Hauritz Wicket
    YouTube - 2009 Ashes Test - Nathan Hauritz Wicket

    And I thought you guys should check this out! Jason Krezja with a beauty!

    YouTube - Jason krejza bowls khawaja with Doosra

    Thanks on your thoughts and opinions.

    The first video I click on (number 3) has a turning delivery. Hauritz can spin the ball. It is not his mode of taking wickets though, he will beat the majority of batsman with the flight he puts on the ball.

    He is better than Xavier Doherty, certainly, but does that make him a good bowler ?

    He has turned it here and there. So to has Doherty but neither of their turning deliveries are threatening enough.

    TBH the way Hauritz will get most of his wickets is either a. beating them in flight and especially with drift, which he gets a lot of or b. with bounce, especially on the cut. He's got a lot of batsmen out cutting.

    Yeah, as has been said, Hauritz does get a bit of turn - less than most frontline Test spinners though and it's not what usually gets him his wickets.

    Hauritz turns a lot of things, but the cricket ball isn't one of them.

    Hauritz spins the ball all right, but its not his forte to go for massive turn, which anyways is not something a finger spinner should be thriving for in this day and age.

    It's what every spinner should be thriving for in every situation. There's no doubt that, in general, Hauritz is more dangerous himself when the ball is turning a bit more.

    I see hardly any turn from Haurtiz. It's just a slow ball with slight rotation. Basically, batting practice, most of the time.

    There's more chance of him turning it into a frog than turning it on a good wicket.

    He does turn it, of course, but not a lot.
