    Hussey's average - How long do we have to wait?.......

    ........until his batting average is considered extraordinary?

    2000 runs?
    5000?

    I know 1000 odd isn't enough to deteremine where this man stands in history but how many does he have to score?

    I say if he's still averaging 75 when he's hit 4000 runs then he's the greatest batsman since Bradman.

    I think when his career finishes you will be able to give tag him with greatness or otherwise. Still think he has a ways to go though... as I type this, he has made 1100 runs in his 11th test @ 78

    We all know that great test batsmen finish with an average over 50.

    Apparently

    When he faces India away, full strength England attack and full strength Pakistan attack 9home and away) and still maintains his average.
    Cause Slifer said so.........!!!!

    I think we can start rating him properly in a year or so. He will have gone through a second summer then, faced England and played a bit more cricket in the subcontinent. Right now in tests we're pretty much judging him on form... he's had four good series in a row now, which is an impressive effort, but if he was to have a quiet Ashes series his average would drop back down to 50 or so.

    If in 12 months he's still averaging 70+ in both forms, it will be a phenomenal achievement. Best since Bradman is the sort of thing that will have to wait until after he retires, of course.

    I certainly doubt the English attack will trouble him overly in Australia, India in India is a challenge for any batsman though

    In my opinion we have to wait until Hussey retires from cricket to make judgments on how good he was. It will be quite a while after he retires when people start to really put him in perspective with other good or great batsmen. Until then, all we can do is watch.

    I think he could be susceptible to being run out.

    The way he turns when coming back for the 3rd is a real achilles heal.

    I never knew turning back for a third run could heal a long-dead Greek soldier.

    Only after he faces Kumble, Harbhajan and Murali in the subcontinent, the Flintoff-Harmison-Hoggard-Jones and Akhtar-Asif-Rana attacks on seaming pitches and gets to 5000 runs at an average above 55.
