    I reckon he'll make a ton in one of the tests, but won't set the world on fire. Average somewhere in the 40s IMO.

    I think it's near-impossible to predict how he'll go. Hussey has made a career out of lengthy purple patches and lengthy d-i-r-e trots.

    I agree with both these posts. I would like to see him make runs, and if he doesn't, I will be calling for his head, and I'm sure a lot of aussie supporters and possibly selectors will run out of patience.

    Has a great county record, i think he might find good form again about half way through the series.

    English conditions might give Hussey the chance to get back to really playing the ball late and being patient. Understandably, as he's lost form he seems to have gone harder and harder at the ball, wanting to feel it hit his bat.

    I think he's got the technique to do well in English conditions. The interesting one for me will be Clarke - to see how his technical changes hold up vs the moving ball (assuming England get their hands on some mints, that is ).

    Let's hope for Clarke's sake they do - wouldn't want him to miss-out on the chance to demonstrate any new-found capability against swing, would we?

    As for Hussey's county record, well, his state record ain't exactly woeful either is it?

    He's had 1 lengthy purple patch....and 1 lengthy poor trot. That is his rather short career so far.

    It's funny how players are judged against good swing bowling too...I think we'd find most will struggle, otherwise it wouldn't be 'good' swing bowling, it would be '****' swing bowling.

    It could go either way, given his horrific recent form and his previous record against England. Given the way things are, though, he is probably more likely to be sub-par, although probably not as dire as he was in SA - England don't have a bowler in Steyn's class.

    At international level that's all there's been so far, but he'd been doing that at domestic level for the best part of a decade beforehand.

    He'll probably fail and a bunch of idiots will say that he can't combat bowler-friendly conditions and they'll convienently ignore the fact that he went into the series in horrid form. Despite all of this, he has one of the best batting techniques in world cricket.

    Probs average mid-30's. He hasn't been playing well, but I still have faith in him.
    5-0

    His bad run of form a little overstated for me. Got a few poor decisions against SA and NZ, and never looked in great nick (although it's conveniently forgotten that he never really does, even when he was churning out the runs).

    I expect him to do fairly well in England.
