Huss Profile

A bit about…

Hussey earned a Cricket Australia contract in 2004–05 after excelling in the ING Cup. Statistically, Hussey's international career was very successful, with his career batting average in Tests being 51.52 and in ODIs 48.15. Hussey played for the IPL team Chennai Super Kings, and he became the second batsman to score a century in the competition, after New Zealand's Brendon McCullum. In the 2010 Champions League Twenty20, Huss played a crucial knock in the group-clash against the Chevrolet Warriors which was a must-win game for the Chennai Super Kings. Hussey's innings fetched him the Man of the match award and helped the Chennai Super Kings to proceed to the knockout stage where they got to win the league altogether.

Hussey has the nickname Mr Cricket, due to his encyclopedic knowledge of his sport. He has repeatedly stated that he dislikes the nickname finding it "a bit embarrassing". England rival Andrew Flintoff and Graeme Swann's brother Alec were reportedly responsible for coining it. Nevertheless, the nickname features prominently in his television ads for a national real estate chain.
