David Hussey's final appearance of theseason for Notts ended in anti-climax as heavy rain showers forced the NatWestPro40 League match with Essex Eagles to be abandoned without a ball beingbowled.

With both sides sharing a point each, theOutlaws appear to be out of the running for the Division One title, but Husseyis confident his team-mates can achieve their main goal of the season bywinning promotion in the LV County Championship.

He said: "It's a bit disappointing to seemy season finish like that, particularly as it feels like there is someunfinished business here.

"We set out to win Division Two in theChampionship and I'm still convinced the boys can do that."

Hussey will be flying home to Australiatomorrow night for a training camp ahead of an 'A' tour of Pakistan.

And the 30-year-old is hopeful he can stillpush on and achieve his life's ambition of representing his country in thefuture.

He added: "The Australian selectors tend topick players who are a bit more mature and experienced - my brother Michael andBrad Hodge are two examples.

"It will be a new experience to play inPakistan but if I can do well and put my name in the frame for a fullinternational cap, then fantastic."
