Big Merv's squad profiles
Nasser Hussain

Nasser Hussain (captain)
Right-handed batsman
Left-arm leg-break bowler

Born: 28 March 1968
County: Essex
Test appearances: 81
Debut: v West Indies 1990

Going to Australia as captain will be a different experience for Hussain.

He must lead and play well from the off otherwise the Australians will be all over him, especially if there is any sign of weakness.

If you break the captain, you can break the team.

That may sound a bit OTT but it's true and what's more I expect Hussain to meet that challenge head on.

But he needs to be careful. With all his captaincy considerations, he doesn't want to lose sight of his batting responsibilities.
