He was not dropped due to poor performance in the 3rd, Shamsi a more attacking option was given a chance. The point is a good bowler, even finger spinners, can still do well even on pitches like Perth even if they don't take 5 for`s every innings.
    I think it was more that one game doesn't tell you very much either way.

    Yeah probably ahead of Haze. Also, this era has slowly become the best in terms of the quality bowling attacks since the 90s.

    Rabada-Philander-Ngidi-Morkel/Steyn's corpse- Maharaj
    Starc-Haze-Cumster-Lyon
    Anderson-Broad-Woakes-Stokes
    Boult-Southee-Wagner
    Bhuvi-Shami-Bumrash-Brain-Jaddu

    All seriously good to great attacks.

    Haze has more of a body of work in his favour tbf. Cummins is so so good though, at some point all the cards are going to fall for him and he's just going to take a pile of wickets in a hurry. Probably once he works out that he needs to bowl a bit fuller.

    Aus and SA attacks are ATG level, we just need another 20 years to acknowledge it.

    Lot of good spin talent going around too. Lyon, Ashwin, Herath, Jadeja, Mahraj, Santner, Sodhi, Rashid Khan, Mehdi Hasan, Shakib, Akila Dananjaya, Sandakan, Chahal, Kuldeep, Yasir Shah, Shadab Khan even Mo Ali is a step above any other English spinner in recent times apart from Swann.

    Add to this the Fab 4 batsmen, and the rise of Ireland and Afghanistan to Test nations, and the general increasing standards of Associates such as Scotland, Netherlands, Nepal...I think we might look back in 20 years and consider this to be a golden era of sorts.

    we often say this about bowlers for their entire careers though. Atm he's nothing on Hazlewood.

    He's outbowled Hazlewood in every series they've played together so far imo.

    Good to see you're finally putting the spinners in the right order here.

    He's bowled a cut above Haze for me as well. Haze takes wickets out of nowhere though, must be said.

    Aus, nah.

    There's a lot of weight to the SA attack though, so much weight. Too much.
