Bio

One of Australia’s best batsmen of the 21st century, “Mr Cricket” will take charge of the Sydney Thunder for the second-year running. 

With an impeccable Twenty20 record of more than 130 matches, 3,900 runs at an average of 39.2 and a strike rate of 125, Hussey has clearly been one to catch in the past. 

A 79-Test veteran and former ODI captain, his leadership abilities go unquestioned, and alongside Jacques Kallis will form a formidable top order.
