Hussey's average in eight tests against Sri Lanka was an even more impressive 110.44 but that did not stop captain Mahela Jayawardene from paying tribute to him.
"I've been fortunate enough to play quite a few test matches against Huss and he's been a nemesis for us throughout the last six years," he said.
"If you see his numbers, if he had had a longer career, he probably would have been one of the greats.
"I think he's a fantastic professional and a great, great guy."
