    Who would you rather have in your team as a batsman - Hussey or Kallis

    Based on discussion in this thread, who would you rather have in your team as a batsman, ignoring (somewhat unfairly, but for the sake of science ) Kallis' bowling.

    Their overall records:
    Kallis: 107 matches, 8430 runs, 55.09 average, 24 centuries, 44 half-centuries
    Hussey: 16 Matches, 1597 Runs, 79.85 Average, 5 Centuries, 8 Half-Centuries

    And their records since Hussey debuted:
    Kallis: 14 Matches, 1093 Runs, 45.54 Average, 2 Centuries, 7 Half-Centuries
    Hussey: 16 Matches, 1597 Runs, 79.85 Average, 5 Centuries, 8 Half-Centuries

    As was pointed out in the linked thread, on the basis of their whole career, its a bit of a no-contest maybe. On the basis of performances in the last two years, a much more interesting question.

    To clarify the question - I'm not asking "over the whole of their career", I mean if you had to have just one (Flem) in your team tomorrow, who would it be.

    Hussey. He hasn't played as much or proved himself as much but I feel he IS the better batsmen. I feel he IS better equipped to deal with the varying situations; whether it be to slog it out or to churn out runs. I also think he is a better team man.

    Is this a serious question?

    Kallis has over 100 Test matches compared to 16 from Hussey and Kallis is younger as well

    Hussey has a brilliant average but 16 Tests is no basis for drawing any conclusions. It isnt a large enough sample size to sugest it will continue.

    In fact there is more evidence to suggest it will decline. Consider after 32 ODIs Hussey averaged over 100, yet now after 72 games it has almost halfed to 58.

    As good a player as Hussey is, a freak average over a small number of games doesnt prove anything.

    Its who you would want in your team right now, and on current form its a non contest for mine.

    Both

    And Pup, does Glasgow have its own county side? Hamish is in England ATM, steal him.

    Both are class batsmen and if it were I would go with Kallis overall as he can bowl. But because this poll is about who woulf be picked as a batsman I vote Hussey

    You may call me Liam, Scotland have played in the C&G for the past 3 seasons so Hamish would do nicely as an overseas player, plus he's got a very scottish name.

    Then he's all yours to steal Liam. Despite his dificulties in international cricket in the past couple of seasons he's been making huge runs in County Cricket last year. I'd take him.

    Answered this in the other thread. It really depends on what you mean and what you were looking for, but I think most teams would go for Hussey over almost any player in the world at the moment. Kallis is obviously the superior choice over the course of his career.

    Yes, my own sentiments are closer to this.
