Australian all-rounder David Hussey has become Nottinghamshire’s quintessential overseas player in recent years.
His association with Notts began in 2004, and is currently enjoying his eighth season in the East Midlands.
The younger brother of Michael, ‘Huss’ as he is affectionately known in Nottinghamshire has scored 9,556 runs for the county, while taking 31 wickets with his occasional off-breaks.
His first season with the county saw Hussey score more than 1200 runs, a feat he outdid during Nottinghamshire’s County Championship-winning season, adding 1231 runs to his Notts total, which included an unbeaten 232 against Warwickshire.
Hussey has also made his mark in international cricket, having played more than 100 times in One Day Internationals and Twenty20 Internationals, amassing in excess of 2500 runs and 37 wickets.
Somewhat bizarrely, Huss has never been selected for a Test, despite his excellent First Class average (55.27) and his ability with the ball in hand.
