Not so statistically aberrant or statistically abhorrent

Mike Hussey's average falls faster than an ice skating stilt walkerWe’ve long had a problem with Mike Hussey’s ludicrous batting average. Finally, after a long wait, South Africa have started dragging it back towards being something more sensible.

Hussey now averages 57.11 after 35 Tests, which is still offensive, but not as offensive as hearing the general public give opinions on something, which is the astounding level of offensiveness his batting average was approaching before.

His recent innings against South Africa have been 0, 8, 0, 2, 30, 45 not out, 4 and 0.

Is Mike Hussey ‘all that’? No. Mike Hussey is only ‘part of that’.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. Just watch the England bowling attack help him “recover” at least some of that offesive average.

    I’ve never found his batting offensive per se. It is the stupid monicker “Mr Cricket” for one of the many people who lives, breathes and does cricket for a living that has always really got up my nose.

  2. It doesn’t, however, stand up to the ultimate retort: A quick, succinct “fuck you”.
    I believe WIlde and the Bard were big fans….
