Hussey now holds the world record of aggregating most runs from ODI debut before first dismissal. The previous record was held by another Australian Michael Clarke, who aggregated 208 runs before his first dismissal in ODIs.
Hussey,in fact, just missed another world record. Had he gone not out in the match against England, he would have equalled the all-time ODI record of playing most consecutive innings from debut without being dismissed.
The ODI record in this category is held Pakistan’s Iftikhar Anjum, who played six consecutive innings without being dismissed once. In fact Anjum is yet to be dismissed in his ODI career of 12 matches, which consists of six ‘did not bat’ entries.
Hussey,however, now joins five other players who were dismissed for the first time in their career (since debut) after playing FIVE innings. They are West Indians Patrick Patterson and Ian Bishop, England’s Jack Russell,Australia’s Michael Kaprowicz and Bangladesh’s Manjural Islam.
