    Husseys Struggle at test level.....

    Hussey is becoming just another one of those players who is far more effective at ODI level than at test level. Hussey averages a mere 120 at test level as opposed to his 150 in ODI's.

    All joking aside........this thread is to discuss his incredible start in both forms of the game. Its early days in his international career, but he doesn't even look like he will go through a bad patch.

    You must rate the West Indies attack fairly highly then. That's all he has faced at Test level. A great start? Yes. But let's, in the Test arena, reserve our judgement for another 13 months or so.

    Yeah... but the West Indies aren't that great, so it's better to wait until he faces attacks of a higher calibre before making such grand statements

    I do hope he breaks both Bradman and Bevan's records.

    Let's see how he does against Pollock, Dog, Nel, and Boje the Great.
    I bowl seam-ups and take the pace off the ball.

    I am actually rather impressed with Micheal Hussey.

    However, when I glanced though his personal profile; I noticed that his first class averages are almost half when compared to his international averages.

    So, it makes me wonder, has the quality of bowling in international cricket declined or he is the real deal ?

    It's just the West Indies bowling that has made his average so high

    If Hussey averaged half in FC what he does atm in international, then he'd have been picked a long time ago.

    Dog = Ntini. Andre Nel is not Dog.

    Could have a bit to do with the number of not outs he has achieved
