The inaugural BBL player of the tournament, David Hussey once again had a strong season with the Melbourne Stars showing his all-round ability on numerous occasions in BBL|03.
Hussey continues to bring a wealth of experience to the Stars, having played for numerous sides in top-class competitions all over the world during an impressive career.
Remarkably, he hit his eighth Big Bash League half century in just the second game of BBL|03, against the Sydney Sixers after taking a wicket in the only over he bowled.
And last season’s stats speak for themselves when it comes to his all-round ability – he recorded the fifth highest batting average, at 49.67, as well as a great bowling strike rate of 12.00. The spinner certainly proved how dangerous he can be, allowing only 29 runs to be scored in return for the three wickets he claimed – one in each of the three games he bowled in.
More often than not, Hussey is busy playing cricket. He has played in every Indian Premier League Tournament since its inception and again proved his ability in the shortest format of the game with the Chennai Super Kings.
In yet another part of the world the 37-year-old made his first foray into the Caribbean Premier League, where he played nine games for the Antigua Hawksbills in July and August. Characteristically reliable, Hussey consistently scored runs for the side, which ended a difficult season on a positive note with a convincing win over Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel.
Hussey, holds the record for the most Twenty20 appearances with the Stars with our captain Cameron White.
The Stars are blessed to have secured the services of Hussey for another year.
Huss is, without doubt, one of the best T20 batsmen in the world. A superstar in every aspect.
