David Hussey entered BBL|05 with a new role and new responsibility; as the Melbourne Stars’ new captain.
Guiding the team to their first ever BBL Final, Hussey batted seven times in BBL|05.
His best knocks included a composed 24 not out against the Sixers and a crucial 36 in the first innings against the Scorchers in Perth.
The right-hand bat sits second on the Stars all-time leading run scorers with 718 runs across five tournaments, and second for Stars caps, running out in green on 39 occasions.
Known as the master of playing spin, Hussey is one of Victoria’s most experienced players and is respected by the entire squad.
