    I'm not Martyn's biggest fan, but I might be M.Waugh's.

    Rate M.Waugh pretty highly.

    Disagree, Hussey's an exceptional judge of a run.

    It's one of the things that makes him (IMO) the perfect limited overs player.

    Hussey's problem will be he averaged 50 in an era where 6 or so teams have 2-3 guys averaging 50.

    England and NZ the only top 8 sides that spring to mind who have lacked a bloke averaging the big five-zero for a big portion of Hussey's career, and even then KP and Cook averaged just below it for most of that time.

    So the future CWers will look at how Hussey's record stacks up against his contemporaries, see he sucks away from home and bats six and won't rank him as highly as some of the other guys playing today.

    Australia's answer to VVS when it comes to saving the team from dire situations.
    Unfortunately, he has been a bit if an HTB. Needs atleast one really big series in SA/Eng if he wants to be rated right up there

    He's one of the players who should've been in the test side earlier. I thought he and Symonds should've been in the 2005 Ashes squad in England.

    Good bloke, very good bat, excellent fielder, and no more. Probably at least 8 or so guys (cbf working out exactly who) who'd make a "2000-present" world XI ahead of him imo.

    Would sell a kidney to have him at 6 for NZ regardless.

    Was wondering about this - in recent times does seem to be adept at piling on the runs when Australia are already winning and Clarke has already done the hard work. But I can think of a few times when Aus were under pressure that he failed. Cbf looking up - when was the last time he scored runs when others didn't and the skiing was uphill?

    Would have been the last Ashes series. Really only Himself, Watson and Haddin who achieved anything with the bat in that series.

    performed well with ponting on boxing day. rubbish in SA, although he managed to scrap out a 30-40 (despite looking awful) in the 2nd test chase. sri lanka tour. aus ashes. and then he was rubbish for 2 years, bar SCG-Pakistan.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
