Australia's Mr Cricket turns Mr Invisible

What if you made a Test ton and no-one really noticed? What if you made three of them?

Australian centurion Mike Hussey, Mr Cricket, has turned Mr Invisible again in the mighty shadow cast by his captain Michael Clarke.

Hussey made 103 against South Africa on Thursday's opening day of the second Test in Adelaide. But Clarke took the limelight with 224 not out.

Hussey made 100 in the drawn series opener in Brisbane. But Clarke held the spotlight with 259 not out.

And last summer Hussey made 150 against India at the SCG. But Clarke was the shining light with 329 not out.

"I do believe there has been a few occasions where Huss's hundreds have been swept under the carpet," Clarke told reporters on Thursday.

"His form is unbelievable, the way he is playing as well, he is walking in at number six and playing with great intent.

"Today he continued to grab hold of that momentum."

Hussey's 18th Test century took his career average again beyond 50 and Clarke hailed his support, and that of David Warner (119), as the Proteas wilted in Adelaide.

"There is obviously a lot of respect for how good a player he is, but a lot of credit needs to go to Huss," Clarke said.

"And Davey as well.

"The way they played up the other end made my life and my job a lot easier ... and that gets forgotten a lot of the time, how important your partner is when you have success."
