i'm yet to be convinced that Rock or Naeem did significantly better today than Ash would have done. but right now is not the time to bring this issue up...

as for #2, swann's numbers through since jan 2009 seemed to indicate he has been the best finger spinner - and by some distance out there - with vettori, ajmal, and shakib being distant competitors. one bad game, or even a bad world cup shouldn't change 2 years worth of stats.
