David Hussey is as close as he’s ever been to playing Test cricket and has implored the national selectors to pick him for next week’s Third Test in Perth.

On the eve of Victoria’s three-day match against England, the usually self-depracating Victorian batsman sent a loud and clear message that he can do the job for Australia.

Hussey, 33, is one of a number of batsman – including his own teammate Cameron White – touted as the right man to fill the No.6 batting spot in an Australian Test side that was flogged by an innings and 71 runs in the second Test in Adelaide.

With opener Simon Katich out through injury and No.6 Marcus North under threat of being dropped, Hussey made no bones about declaring his credentials for the job.

“First and foremost I’ve played 10 years of first class cricket, I have 150 games under my belt, so I have lots of experience and I think I’m ready to go,” Hussey, the younger brother of in-form Test incumbent Michael, said before the Bushrangers’ final training session.
