Mr. Best Man

One of the few sour points about yesterday was another failure for Mike Hussey. I always wish him well when he comes to the crease. I think it’s because he always looks as if he’s about to start blubbing when he gets out, big sad eyes and plaintive eyebrows.

He has the air of decency. He’s the type of bloke you’d ask to be your best man because you know he wouldn’t handcuff you to the central reservation of the A1. He’d organise a nice dinner at an medium-priced Italian restaurant before delivering me back safely to my fiancee before midnight.

In a ideal world Hussey would compose an attractive half-century every time he batted. But then get out. Even better he should just retire. Test cricket is maybe a bit too tough for him. Become a professional best man instead.
