Nathan Hauritz vs Shane Warne

Nathan Hauritz, who got his first 5-wicket haul today had been challenged earlier in the week to stand up and take last innings wickets. there was even pressure by the PM Kevin Rudd on Warne to come back and play for Australia. While Warne is a legend and one of the best bowlers of all time he didn't start his test career bamboozling batsmen and taking tons of wickets. With that in mind, let's take a look at the stats for both Warne and Hauritz at the same point in their respective careers (11 Tests).

 Hauritz

We can see that Hauritz has bowled a lot more than Warne did in his first 11 games. This is because he has been bowled in 21 innings compared to 16 for Warne. We also see that while Warne got his wickets at 1 run less per each, Hauritz has so far taken his wickets 8 balls less per than Warne did. Hauritz has a long way to go but if he can keep improving as he has been recently and Australia's batsmen score enough runs to allow him to bowl with attacking fields he may just become a great.
