About Michael Edward Killeen Hussey
Michael Hussey was born in 27 May 1975, Morley, Western Australia is an Australian cricketer, a left-handed specialist batsman. Hussey is also widely known by his nickname Mr Cricket.Michael Hussey almost went bust in 2008-09 as the recession hit hard. The man who had gone closest to nudging BradmanS-B-Cs average for three years slid towards his team-mates in a lengthy slump that eventually led to concerns over his place in the side. At the start of 2008 his average was 80.58, a few runs below BradmanS-B-Cs, but by the end of the South Africa series 15 months later his number was almost up - at a distinctly mortal 55.29.After scoring tons of runs in domestic cricket, Michael Hussey earned a belated call to the Australian team in 2004 and attained Bradmanesque heights in his first three years in Test cricket.
Michael, the older of the two Hussey brothers in the international cricket scene, is a well-built left-hand batsman. Calm outwardly but strong of mind, Hussey has also grown to become a good fielder and a safe catcher, often plucking some great catches at gully. Hussey earned a Cricket Australia contract in 2004–05 after excelling in the ING Cup. Statistically, HusseyS-B-Cs international career has been very successful, with his career batting average in tests being 55.29 as of April 2009 (and between 2006 and 2008 hovering between 75 and 85) and in ODIs 54.72. His Test average is among the highest of contemporary batsmen. He is currently second on the list of best averages ever in ODI cricket. He was also part of AustraliaS-B-Cs 2007 ICC World Twenty20 squad which was knocked out in the semi-finals. He played in all of AustraliaS-B-Cs matches, scoring 65 runs with a best of 37 before injuring a hamstring, which prevented his participation in AustraliaS-B-Cs tour of India
