    Eighty And Out

    Eighty And Out
    When Michael Hussey shot out of the blocks his performances were described as "Bradmanesque", but did he really deserve that accolade? Here we look at whether anyone ever has.

    Interesting analysis. Just one thing though; at the top, it says Hussey had 80 not outs, when I assume it was meant to be 8?

    pretty cool, it just goes to show how far Bradman is ahead. also pity that not one NZ batsmen featured anywhere on those list, we really do have I work cut out for us all the best Jesse Ryder.

    A comment by Tapioca made me realise I had uploaded a slightly out of date version, but I then realised I could improve on this. For the era-specific section at the end, I only included in each player's analysis those games in which he appeared, but excluding his own performances in the comparison. In this way, we have a direct comparison with his peers under almost exactly the same circumstances. There are some surprises:-
