    Hussey being dropped a single innings after scoring 140-odd would obviously be a terrible piece of selection. However, should his replacement score 67 and 56 it would obviously then become an excellent one.

    Seriously hope that if Aus bring Watson in for anyone, it's North. And, clearly, he deserves to be dropped no more than Ponting currently.

    The prob with that theory is that these days Australia only has to bat once a match

    Agree re North - lol'd to see someone earlier in the thread describe
    him as being carried

    In fairness he has had 6 torrid test matches in a row against the Proteas and another bad outing against the poms at Cardiff, but as many have said already said dropping him at any point in this series would be crazy, he is a proven performer and he should be given atleast the next 4 tests to prove himself all over again.

    Though if he still fails to uplift his fortunes by the end of this Ashes, then it would only be fair enough to drop him, and move on and provide a chance to some other deserving player.
    Might be last 13 innings.

    It's 13 somethings.

    That would be correct.

    In Hussey's last 13 innings, he has scored 220 @ 18.33 with 1 fifty. He also scored a 45* during this period.

    I know, but that's the way quite a few people see it. A bad selection becomes a good one if it ends-up profitable.

    Be stupid to drop him, even if he isn't making runs, he brings experience and has proven in the past that he can make runs when the chips are down.

    IMO would be a bad decision. Watson would add very little with the ball (a poor mans Tim Bresnan) and doubtful he is as good with the bat as Huss. Hussey is actually a pretty dynamic fielder to.

    Can't believe the calls to drop to be honest. Cricket is a team game which thrives on quality players who are specialists at their craft, not half fit, out of form 'all rounders'. If you're going to pick an injured Watson, you might as well pick a fit McDonald, both are dire options. Hussey has been the rock of ages in the middle order and so what if he's had a bad 18 months, the point is quality players will get through troughs in the their career.
    Inappropriate signature.

    Atleast Bresnan swings the ball, at a higher pace aswell.

    You could say that Flintoff is a poor man's Shane Watson aswell. Really, Flintoff is just a fatter, uglier verison of Shane Watson and unlike Watson, gives up when he gets injured.

    Got no swing? Ask Rahul Dravid.
