Maybe not benchy actually. In fact, I have nfi who was saying it other than me. But people were saying it.
Iirc I was saying it too, but a little different. I was saying his inability to cash in will be a problem for him later on because he won't have big innings' to fall back on when it comes to a period of bad form, so he has nothing to hang his hat on at the selection table. Also said that making fifties is good for an opener and shouldn't be dropped because his primary job is to take the shine off, and we had no better alternatives to do that as consistently at that stage.
Did note that cashing in on his starts was a mental thing, and it would be good if he finally did this as you want your players to turn half scores into big scores, especially when in form.

it seems to be noted finger spinner vic_orthdox saying it
When asked whether he was too old for the gig, 35-year-old Hussey joked: 'I'm 29 - what are you talking about?
'I guess my advantage is I've played for a long time. I know my game pretty well. I've made a lot of first-class runs.
'Allegedly I'm a very good player of spin, so I'd love to prove myself against the Indians.'

RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
Some Australian records for Huss
6th highest average, just above Steve Waugh (to stay there he can score 0 in 1 inn, or 48 runs in 2 inn)
12th highest run scorer, whereby he'll sit between Bradman and Harvey
12th highest number of centuries where he equals Mark Taylor, however in 26 less Tests (if he gets another he can be equal 11th with Mark Waugh, however in 49 less Tests)
Would just like to congratulate Hussey for hogging a batting space for a whole summer designed to groom a team for the ashes. In fact congratulations to he and Ponting and the selectors that enabled them, to keep playing when we should have been rebuilding since 2009. Since then 2 ashes series have gone by and Australia will now be forced to build a team during the next ashes instead of having one ready for it.
So congats to them both....slow hand
Yep because the Ashes are clearly the only Test matches that matter.
i dunno know, the guy's kinda got a point. katich (and to a lesser extent, usman) took bullets for hussey and ponting, with an eye to the ashes, and they've both ****ed off before it anyway. and it seems hussey decided to retire before the summer started, and kept it from everybody until after the squad for the last test of the summer had been picked. that's kinda annoying. no wonder they're thinking of not giving hussey a farewell ODI series. what a ****.
If there were guys batting well enough to displace Hussey, he'd have been dropped ages ago. Fact.
I hope they make him open or come in at three tomorrow.
Also sad sight that Sri-lanka didn't expect him to appear on the field as a batsman twice.
