Message: RHC needs to get an idea about cricket before he starts telling the selectors how to do their jobs. Mate, Hussey hasnt even got an ACB contract and he was dropped from the Victorian side you goose. Once again, Mr "im an expert on everything" is proven to be far from an expert. Keep up the dribble though speeds its amusing.

Message: The stats are factual RHC you pidgeon. David Hussey had a very poor last season in first class cricket in Australia. His over all average may well be 56 but the stats tell us he finished last season with an average of 24. Clearly not good enough for a test spot. Don't conveniently ignore the facts to promote yor own deluded viewpoint. Good form in English county cricket also counts for squat. Brendon Julian has made first class centuries over there so it aint that hard. I stick by what I said. You know nothing about cricket mate. An un contracted player coming off a season where he averaged 24 and got dropped is quite categorically not going to be a factor in any Australian test side, no matter how bad the Aussies are travelling. He might have been picked in the World Series Cricket era, but hey, so did David Ogilvie and a 45 year old Bob Simpson. Take a reality check RHC and stop trying to fudge the facts. Here is a hypothetical based on your retarded logic. A test player has an over all test average of 58 but has only averaged 10.5 in the last 12 months. Your theory suggests he should be picked based on his over all average rather than his current form. That is why you are the silly one mate. NO IDEA!
Message: "Hussey would be happy with an ACB contract let alone a place in the Aus side."
The current side looks awfully bad atm.
I dont think d.hussey is ready for tests just yet but I'd have him in the one day squad.
M. Hussey is the most in form player atm and really should be in the side. Either opening for Hayden or playing no 6, they cant be leaving him out if they want to win.
I dont have anything against Katich but he's not better than M.Hussey. I hope Katich gets a 100 tomorrow cause he's going to need it to save australia. If he doesnt get runs in this test I cant see how the selectors can keep him in the side ahead of M.Hussey.
If australia lose this test, they have to bite the bullet and throw hodge and m.hussey into the side. Sticking with out of form players isnt working.
The selectors and coaching staff need to be reviewed.
Hayden's record over the last 16 tests is woeful.
Brett Lee averages over 30 and he leads our pace attack?
Without Mcgrath our seemers look very very ordinary.
The only shinning light is Tait.
Time for a complete overhaul of selections and the coaching staff.
The ACB cuts Lillee's hours back so he said forget it. The ACB needs to wake up.
Message: About a fortnight ago, RHC said that 90% of English people are no good. Now he is saying that players should be picked for the Australian Test side based on English county form.
He also clearly meant that he thought that either of the Husseys would be a better selection than Hayden, and now that he has been pointed out the brutal truth about David Hussey's form, he throws in some ludicrous caveat about him not being ready for Test cricket.
RHC - if you are going to be an arrogant strutter around the joint, pulling people up left, right and centre for making allegedly stupid statements, then I suggest you get your own house in order. You are making no sense.
