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.
Despite having his BBL tournament cut short due to a call up to Australia’s ODI team, Hussey accumulated 151 runs at an average of 21.6, while also providing a clean pair of hands in the field with four catches.
The 35-year-old’s talent in limited overs cricket has been showcased at international level since making his debut in the ODI team early 2008. His nickname Mr.T20 is testimony to his worldwide reputation in the shortest format.
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 Kings XI Punjab in 2013.
The Stars stalwart will added another English summer to his resume. Since making his debut for Nottinghamshire in 2004 he has been their first port of call as an overseas player and returned for an eighth stint with the “Notts” this year.
Hussey, who holds the club record for Twenty20 appearances, captained Notts Outlaws throughout 2013's FLt20 tournament.
He polled in the top four players for Cricket Australia’s ODI player of the year and is a huge asset to the Stars not just because of his on-field talents, but also for his love of a laugh that makes him a hit in the change rooms.
The Stars are blessed to have secured the services of Hussey until BBL|04.
Huss is, without doubt, one of the best T20 batsmen in the world. A superstar in every aspect.
