Dominated County Cricket though which is evidently a superior competition.
He was being compared to the Don in his first 2 years of international cricket @ an avg of 70 but incapability to cash in away from home sealed him as a prominent batsman, a brilliant batsman, but not quite a great, a pioneer.

I don't think Hussey is an all-time great in Test cricket, he was very good but not a great. It could certainly be argued for one day cricket though.

From 1994 (when Hussey debuted in fc cricket) Australia have had these batsmen: Ponting, Hayden, Langer, Waugh, Waugh, Slater, Gilchrist, Martyn, Taylor and Clarke. I prefer 6 of that 10 over Hussey and maybe the remaining 4 as well. I'd prefer David Boon and Alan Border from the years just preceding as well. I can't see a player like Hussey, who was carried through a prolonged poor patch in a struggling side, would be anywhere near an Aussie atg XI.
Great player and awesome human being but ATG? Sadly, no!

I never get it when charity, chivalry, fighting for LGBT rights, adopting orphaned whales etc get mixed up with run scoring or wicket taking skills.
Who cares if Hussey bought reading glasses for his granny or whether he poured milk into the cup of that homeless man? This is only about cricket, dude. Botham, Warne and such assholes FTW.
Assholes, really? I'd have a beer with Warne or Botham anyday.

Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
