Overseas star David Hussey is targeting aone-day trophy with Nottinghamshire after signing a new two-year contract.
The 30-year-old Australian run-machinedidn't have to think twice before agreeing to return to Trent Bridge andbelieves they can challenge for silverware on all fronts in 2008.
He said: "I would love to play at Lord's ina one-day final and that's one of my biggest goals for next season.
"Winning the Championship is still thebiggest thing you can achieve in county cricket but it's been a long time sinceNotts lifted a one-day trophy, and it's something I and the rest of the squadwant to change."
Hussey has scored more than 5,000first-class runs in four seasons at Trent Bridge, averaging 65.06 with 19hundreds.
In 2007 he smashed a career-best 275against Essex, including 14 sixes - two short of equalling the world-record ina first-class innings set by fellow Australian Andrew Symonds forGloucestershire against Glamorgan in 1995.
He also acted as stand-in captain at thestart of the season when Stephen Fleming was on international duty with NewZealand, and is excited at the prospect of playing under new skipper ChrisRead.
He said: "There were no doubts in my mindabout coming back and it's a pretty exciting time for Notts with Chris ascaptain.
"I think he will help us to claim somemuch-warranted silverware and I'm confident we can challenge again for theChampionship title."
Next year sees county cricket revert to oneoverseas player per side and Notts Director of Cricket Mick Newell had nohesitation in returning to the Australia A batsman.
He said: "Hussey has been a fantasticoverseas player for Notts, has never let us down and if anything has got betterand better.
"In 2007 he seemed to reach a new level ofmaturity in his performances and we are very keen to see that continue.
"He slid quite easily into the captaincy at thestart of the season and is a senior and hugely respected figure in the dressingroom."
