“I’m very excited actually. I’m really looking forward to getting back in around the Aussie team. They are going to be trying to get strategies in place, develop a style of play and what players they want and I love all that stuff – planning for a big event,” he spoke on his appointment.
Hussey’s selection in the mentoring role follows Australia head coach Justin Langer’s mantra of seeking help from legends of the game such as Ricky Ponting in the World Cup and Steve Waugh in the Ashes. Hussey will be joined by Ryan Harris, who takes over as the bowling coach.
