Sydney:Mike Hussey's record book is getting illustrious by the day and the latest addition to it is the record of being part of more Test wins than any other player in the world.

According to a report in the Sydney Morning Hearld, the Aussie has played in 15 Test wins and one draw since making his debut against West Indies in 2005, overtaking West Indian Eldine Baptiste, who played in 10 Tests and won them all.

The prolific left-hander, who has a mind-boggling average of over 79 in both Tests and ODIs, has not been a part of any Test loss so far.

All-rounder Andrew Symonds, who is more a part of the Australian one-day side, is close on Hussey's heels with 12 wins and a draw from 13 Tests.

Paceman Tait picked for next two ODIs: Shaun Tait was today added to Australia's 13-member ODI squad for the coming two matches against New Zealand and England in the ongoing tri-series.

Chairman of Australia's National selection Panel, Andrew Hilditch said Tait has been added in view of the upcoming World Cup and the selectors want to give the bowler a chance to prove his worth.

Australia will take on New Zealand tomorrow and then face off against England on Feb 2.

''We are taking the opportunity to add Shaun Tait with a view to looking at him ahead of World Cup squad selection. These next two games form the final opportunity to look at him ahead of World Cup squad selection,'' the chief selector said in a statement.
