Profile

David Hussey can count himself unlucky for not having played a Test match yet for Australia. Just like his older brother, Hussey has scored a mountain of runs in all three forms of the game.

Hussey’s name was first mentioned in 2003/04 when he hit a sensational 212* to guide Victoria to a memorable victory over NSW.

The classy Victorian has been a run scoring machine throughout his career. Three consecutive centuries in the 2006/07 season led to his selection in the Australia A squad.

Another huge year of cricket in 2009/10 saw Hussey top the Sheffield Shield charts with 970 runs at just over 57.

With 12,789 runs at First Class level, Hussey’s non-selection in the Test squad has surprised many, especially given his stellar service to the country in the shorter forms of the game.

Hussey made his ODI debut for Australia in the West Indies, where he set the record for the quickest 50 by an Australia, taking just 19 deliveries to achieve the feat.

His batting in the middle overs has been exemplary for both Australia and Victoria, with the right-handed batsman regularly notching big scores at a fast rate.

After years of dominating Australian grounds, Hussey finally cracked his first ODD hundred at the MCG last year, with a fluent 100 against Tasmania.

Hussey has also had a successful T20 career for Australia, as well as the Melbourne Stars and in the IPL.

In a glittering 215 game career, Hussey has maintained a strike rate of over 130, and boasts one century to his name. He is also the highest paid Australian in the IPL, after being bought for $1.4 million by the Kings XI Punjab.

His bowling has become a handy asset in limited overs cricket, with his spin proving extraordinarily difficult to attack. An economy rate of just 6.51 for Australia highlights the plight faced by opposition players.

With an average over 54, Hussey would be automatically picked for pretty much any country but Australia. He has fallen victim to the endless talent pool at our disposal, and will be considered one of the best players to never play a Test if he doesn’t get a late call-up.

Australia’s loss is Victoria’s gain, with Hussey likely to play an uninterrupted season with both the Bushrangers and the Stars.
