Mike Hussey has implored Australian selectors to look long-term ahead of the Sydney Test.

With Australia heading towards a defeat in Melbourne, Hussey said it was it time to recall Matt Renshaw for the first Test match of 2019.

“Every single (state coach) that I’ve asked says Matt Renshaw is a 10-year Test player,” he said.

“He hasn’t scored enough runs for Queensland but because I’m looking ahead, I’ll put Renshaw at the top of my batting order with Marcus Harris.”

Mike Hussey’s top six for Sydney:

1 – Marcus Harris

2 – Matt Renshaw

3 – Usman Khawaja

4 – Shaun Marsh

5 – Travis Head

6 – Aaron Finch
