We still need to see how Swann plays India and Sri Lanka in the subcontinent and how Ajmal plays India in the subcontinent. Problem is that Ajmal might never play against India.
Swann ain't done too badly has he
Swann, without a doubt.
Just the Farhat ball alone, Off spin at its finest.
Ajmal, I fear, is heading down the Saqlain route. (too over-reliant on the doosra, will affect his ability to land his off break, may lead to his exit from the game farther down the line)

Swann is apparently the world's leading wicket taker this year. Often a bit of a useless stat given the disparity in Tests played by different sides etc, but it did surprise me as he's not been at his best for large parts of this year.
Have to say Swann has bowled reasonably well in India
South African test series is huge for Ajmal. Herath, Bhajji and Swann all had reasonable time on their last trips to SA so no reason for Ajmal to not to perform.
there is always something about Pakistani spinners not performing against South Africa while the rest of the world spinners make merry against them
It all started back in 1996 when South Africans swept the **** out of Mushy
I remember something like 4 or 5 boundaries in one of Mushy's overs and all on the sweep shot I think
both Mushy and Kaneria have contributed to a test win in South Africa no reason for Ajmal to not do it albeit SA is probably the better batting line up now then what they were in 98 or 2006.
Tbf Mushy was bowling with Waqar and Shoaib while Kaneria had Asif and Shoaib. Ajmal will probably have Wahab Riaz and Cheema
