Michael Hussey Biography

Michael Edward Killeen Hussey (born 27 May 1975, Morley, Western Australia) is an Australian cricketer. Hussey is a left-handed specialist batsman. Hussey is also widely known by his nicknames of Huss, The Huss, and Mr Cricket, the latter due to his encyclopaedic knowledge of his sport, though he loathes the latter nickname.

Hussey was a relative latecomer to both the ODI and Test Australian teams, debuting at 28 and 30 years of age in the respective formats, with 15,313 first-class runs prior to test debut.However, he has had a highly successful international career, being the top-ranked ODI batsman in the world in 2006 and maintaining the all-time second-highest test batting average among cricketers who have played more than 25 tests.He plays first-class cricket as vice-captain of the Western Warriors in Australia and has played for three counties in England.

Hussey initially played for his native Western Australian Warriors, and his career total of 6471 runs ranks eighth in the list of Western Australian run-makers in the Sheffield Shield. He then moved to England, where in July 2001 he scored an unbeaten 329 (a Northamptonshire club record) at Wantage Road in his side's 633 for six declared on the way to a ten-wicket victory. He later captained Northamptonshire. In August 2003 he surpassed his own Northamptonshire record, when he scored 331 not out against Somerset at Taunton.

When playing for the second-string national team, Allan Border once jokingly suggested that he get match practice by staying in the nets for a full six hours; to his astonishment, Hussey went on to do just that.Hussey Initailly was a Right Handed Batsmen when he first started playing the game but then turned himself into a left hander as he is greatly inspired by Allan Border. Hussey's devotion to the game has earned him the nickname "Mr. Cricket", which appeared on the back of his shirt in the Twenty20 International against South Africa in 2006. During the 2007 20/20 Match against England, Hussey was seen with the nickname "Huss" on his shirt instead of the famous "Mr Cricket".
