    Is the Hussey magic over?

    I feel real pain putting up this debate because i am huge fan of Huss, but off-late his form has tailed off from the SCG game against England (which Aussies lost) in the CB Series (barring his hundred in 2nd C-H Trophy game).


    Yesterday Ian Chappell was also saying that though he is a good player he isn't as good as his stats suggest, and now he would get sorted a bit by other teams. I hope Hussey proves his critics wrong quickly.

    Well I don't think anyone in the world thought he is as good as his stats suggest (his test average is 80).

    Sorry, but anyone who thinks that Hussey is gone needs a brain scan. Form is temporary, Class is eternal. Hussey will make many more 100s for Australia in both forms of the game.

    I don't know if he'll retain his average (in both forms of the game), but he is a class batsmen and will continue to do very well.

    I doubt he'll retain his average, it was a freak, and meant nothing tbh.

    Yup. His FC average is 55, which is what his Test average will end up being (which makes him an elite batsman).

    I guess, but I am 100% sure that he'll get another Test 100 for Australia, barring serious injury or something like that.

    Purely and simply, this had to happen sometime.

    I'm glad it may be, TBH - I didn't really want a Bradman-the-2nd-coming, nor did I want Hussey to supersede Bevan. However, to date his ODI average is still better than Bevan and to date his Test downfall has not started.

    Let's just wait and see. It's only 8 or 9 innings.

    It's probably just a minor form slump.
    I agree that his average will not remain in the 80's and will probably be around the mid 50's when his career finishes.
    Where's my money?

    the fact we have made six straight scores over 300 suggests something, he's not actually having to make runs lately, he's coming in with not long left in the innings, sure he could have done a bit better but its no reason to panic yet...

    Hussey, if he has a long career ( ie, approaching 100 tests and 200+ ODIs), i would predict him ending up as a between 45-50 averaging test batsman and 35-40 averaging ODI batsman.

    That's never stopped him before.

    55 in tests, 60 in ODIs for me

    But barring the WI game, his time at the crease in this tournament thus far hs been really limited - he came in with 2.5 overs to go against SA and was caught on the cover boundary going the tonk, likewise his innings in the pool matches. WI was the only time he had a chance to play a decent innings and he fluffed it.

    Imo the mistake the selectors made was in not batting Hussey at 4 or 5 in the earlier games when they always knew they would likely drop Hodge when Symonds came back. This deprived Hussey of valuable match practice in these games.

    Looking for a Greigy here - Tipping him for a big score if and when Australia find themselves in strife.
