    I don't know, would be very harsh to downplay the quality of his knock, because he had one or two moments of fortune. This is the best I've seen Michael Hussey bat in a long, long time. Probably since the last Ashes series in Australia.

    Muss doesn't need to retire on a high. He still obviously loves the game (compared to say a Martyn when he retired) and he's only been playing test cricket for 5 years.

    He needs to carry on,Australia need him with doubts over a few of the other bats in the side due to fitness and form.It was a top knock and when any player gets a score that big they generally have a few moments of fortune in it,just Hussey had quite a few but credit to him he cashed in and got big runs when his side needed it.

    Be interesting to see if this was a one off or if he can back it up with more good scores through the series.

    Don't reckon he'll dominate this series but that he'll start chipping in with a few more useful runs. I also don't think he intends to retire if he continues to play well either

    Because Hussey faced Anderson much, much more than Haddin. I don't think Haddin would've looked much more comfortable against that.

    I don't think any batsmen would have... it was just damn good bowling.

    It was indeed, which is why I'm saying Hussey looking "scratchy" then is not a fair indication of anything wrt to his batting form.

    I don't think he looked particularly scratchy anyway. Given most of the balls Anderson was bowling were flying 1 mm past his bat, you are hardly going to look in control. The only iffy moment other than his first ball was a few of the close lbw calls later on, but other than that he looked easily as good as the Huseey of old imo.

    Agreeing with Octavius ( DCYE) on both points here. Hussey does seem a genuinely good guy, so if anyone was going to score 195 versus us in this Ashes he's the least worst option, give or take the odd Katich or two.

    & he was 30+ on debut, so can't see him willingly pulling the plug myself. Making up for lost time, etc.

    Looking more and more like an actual resurrection rather than just a twitch of the corpse, I'd say. Seems in genuinely good touch.

    Has had a fair bit of luck though. Deserves full credit for cashing in though.

    Against bowling of that calibre you need it.

    Not disagreeing. Just that if his two edges had carried to Swann instead of dropping just short, he'd possibly be out of the team with calls for his retirement.

    Fine margins.

    Hussey's a pretty lucky batsman in general, most of his centuries over the past few years have come with things going for him over and above the cosmic assistance most other batsmen receive.
