England skipper Nasser Hussain achieved a personal landmark, when he reached the 4,000-run mark in the 3rd and final Test at Auckland on April 3. However he could not help in avoiding defeat in spite of his fighting innings of 82 as England lost the Test by 78 runs.[an error occurred while processing this directive]Hussain becomes the 23rd player from England to surpass 4,000 or more runs in Tests. The other England players to accomplish this feat are G A Gooch (8,900 runs in 118 Tests), D I Gower (8,231 in 117), G Boycott (8,114 in 108), M A Atherton (7728 in 115), M C Cowdrey (7,624 in 114), A J Stewart (7,469 in 115), W R Hammond (7,249 in 85), L Hutton (6,971 in 79), K F Barrington (6,806 in 82), D C S Compton (5,807 in 78), J B Hobbs (5,410 in 61), I T Botham (5,200 in 102), J H Edrich (5,138 in 77), T W Graveney (4,882 in 79), G P Thorpe (4,857 in 73), A J Lamb (4,656 in 79), H Sutcliffe (4,555 in 54), P B H May (4,537 in 66), E R Dexter (4,502 in 62), M W Gatting (4,409 in 79), A P E Knott (4,389 in 95) and R A Smith (4,236 in 62).Born in India at Madras on Marhc 28, 1968, Hussain has been trying to mould the English team and has been successful also to some extent. He made his Test debut against West Indies in the 1st Test at Kingston in 1989-90. It is interesting to note that Hussain has recorded a century against all teams except Pakistan.
