So the ever reliable Mike Hussey has called test cricket a day....

he will continue to play odi's until the end of February



He averaged 51 in test cricket, which is a magnificent effort in its-self, but also he didnt come into tests until the age of 30, and he just grasped it straight away!!

Aussies now lost Ponting and Hussey in short space of time, and who replaces him?

Khawaja-Promised much, but gone off the boil..

Joe Burns-Younster in aussie cricket, who does look promising, but is he ready?!

Glenn Maxwell-SLOGGER- but selectors seem to like him at the moment..

Quiney-as an england fan, if quiney was in aussie side for ashes i would be ecstatic...

What about Chris Rogers. He bats similar in style to Hussey (left-handed) and unlike those young guys who are still a bit raw has tremendous experience of English county conditions as an opening batsman. With him at 6 Australia suddenly a more solid batting unit.

The big test will be batting in England as a first series if it is someone new, so wouldn't be supprised to see an experienced face even just as a stop gap.

Which is why Chris Rogers fits the bill as the ideal candidate.

David Hussey would be my choice to bat at 6. He has proven himself time and again in English conditions.

Congratulations to Mike on everything he has achieved in test cricket as well. Proof that you don't need to be in your early 20's to make a successful debut, we all talk about the decline of the Aussie side from 07 to recently but without Hussey in the line-up when Hayden,Langer, Martyn, Gilchrist, Warne, McGrath, etc left they would've been in a whole lot more trouble. Great player and a great servant to the game.
