Former Australia batsman Michael Hussey has ruled out coming out of international retirement to rescue the national cricket team, which is reeling under two demoralising Test defeats in India.
“ …I don’t think so,” Hussey said, brushing aside thoughts of a comeback. He said it’s important that Australia show faith in the batsmen on tour, rather than sending him an SOS. “They have picked a squad for this tour so you have got to try and believe and back the guys you have chosen and show faith in them… ” Hussey was quoted as saying by the ‘Australian’. “It looks like it has been pretty tough batting on those wickets so I don’t think I would have had too much of a say.” Hussey, who announced his retirement from Test cricket in January.
“…It looks like it has been tough for the boys over there… ” he said. “Particularly if you haven’t played Test cricket over there before, it can be really challenging... …The more you play in those conditions, the better your plans become and the better you can execute your plans...” he said.PTI
