Profile

An accumulator who is virtually impossible to distract at the crease, Michael Hussey waited a decade before becoming an overnight star. Others might have given up, or at least relaxed, during all that time in the backblocks of the Sheffield Shield and County Championship, but Hussey maintained the intensity and was soon living in a statistical world occupied by few others. After two years in the Test side his average rose to 86.18; it had already taken 29 ODIs for his mean to drop below 100. In just 166 days he become the fastest player to 1000 Test runs, but he was reluctant to dwell on the records because he knew the sky-high ride wouldn't last.

Timeline
    • November 4-7, 1994-95
      First steps
      • Debuts as an opener for Western Australia in 1994-95, scoring 16, and grows into one of the state's greatest batsmen. It takes another 11 years of consistent output before he convinces the national selectors of his worth.
    • August 14-17, 2003
      Triple treats
      • Becomes only the third man after Wally Hammond and Graeme Hick to amass three County Championship triple-hundreds. His 331 for Northamptonshire against Somerset in 2003 follows the 310 and 329 in his previous two seasons with the side. In England he is incredible in the Championship, averaging 79 in 2001, 72 in 2002, 89 in 2003, 36 in 2004 and 76 in 2005.
    • February 1-17, 2005
      Green and gold fever
      • Is unbeaten on 17 in his first ODI and isn't dismissed until his sixth innings. Picked for the limited-overs tour of New Zealand, he scores 31 off 15 balls in his opening Twenty20. Despite his initial success with the team and his outstanding form in England, he is not selected for the Ashes Test squad.
