Hussey out to teach students a lesson

Date: April 13-15
Start time: 11am
Game: Notts v Loughborough UCCE
Competition: First-class friendly
Entry is free

Q: How are you settling in?
A: "It?s great to be back. I?m just shaking off the last of the jetlag and that?s been helped by the fact I have Graeme Swann as my new neighbour. I?m thrilled to be back in Nottingham and can?t wait to get out in the middle."

Q: You had a pretty tough winter back home in Australia. What have you been doing to get over that?
A: "I had a frustrating season for Victoria but had a month off to recharge the batteries. Since I landed in Nottingham I?ve done a lot of skills work with Paul Johnson and he?s got me playing straighter again.
"Now I just need the time in the middle for some match practice in English conditions as I?m determined to get back to the standards I set last season."

Q: What are your predictions for the season?
A: "There?s no point turning up just to make up the numbers and I?m sure we have what it takes to do well. I don?t see why we can?t win the Championship with our squad, plus the additions we?ve made in Swann, who?s a quality all-rounder, and Stephen Fleming, one of the best players and captains in the world."

Q: Do you know anything about the opposition?
A: "I have to confess not, but I?ve been told Vikram Atri used to be on the staff here at Trent Bridge. I see the game as a preview for the start of the season and the chance to get ready for our opening games against Middlesex."

Squad:
Gallian (cap), Bicknell, Singh, Warren, Hussey, Read (wkt), Ealham, Swann, Franks, Sidebottom, Smith, Harris.
