Mike Hussey: Mr Cricket was intense and well drilled

Hussey, Michael E K

Michael Edward Killeen Hussey (born 27 May 1975) was a left-handed specialist batsman. Hussey is also widely known by his nickname Mr Cricket.

Hussey was a relative latecomer to both the one-day international and Test Australian teams, debuting at 28 and 30 years of age in the respective formats, with 15,313 first-class runs before making his Test debut. However, he has had a highly successful international career, being the top-ranked ODI batsman in the world in 2006.

Hussey rose to prominence in the Ashes series of 2006-07, notching the second-highest Australian run total (458) and highest batting average (91.60) of the series as his side whitewashed England for the first time since 1920-21.

He played first-class cricket as vice-captain of the Western Warriors in Australia and has played for three counties in England. He also played in the Indian Premier League for the Chennai Super Kings, although he opted out of the 2009 season.

He was the only player in the history of cricket to average over 50 in both International Test and One Day cricket.

He is a very occasional medium pace bowler, bowling only 28 overs in his Test career, 23 of them in 2008. He is brought into the attack usually to give the pace bowlers a rest, although he was once brought on in India to stop Ricky Ponting getting a one-match ban for a slow over rate. On December 28, 2008, Day 3 of the Boxing Day test, he got his first test wicket, Paul Harris caught by Mitchell Johnson. He ended with figures of 1/22. He has taken two wickets in one-day internationals.

Hussey made a surprise call to retire after the 3rd Test against Sri Lanka at the SCG in Jan 2013.
