Mike Hussey is the most striking name on a list of four batsmen who will start the Ashes series with their places under threat, according to the former Australia strokemaker Mark Waugh – who is also worried by the form of Mitchell Johnson and Nathan Hauritz, two members of the Australia attack.

Hussey has been a fixture in the middle order since making his debut in 2005, and still averages more than 50. But he has made only two centuries in his past 28 Tests – one of them in the team that conceded the Ashes at The Oval 14 months ago when his place was last the subject of similar conjecture – and Waugh has joined his former Australia team-mate Michael Slater in urging the selectors to promote a younger man.
