Rebuilding career, Test spot my ultimate goal: David Hussey

Posted By: Staff

St. Lucia, Apr 28(ANI): Australian batsman David Hussey insists that losing his Cricket Australia (CA) contract was a "kick in the teeth", and said he does face the task of rebuilding his career.

Hussey will be making a comeback in the Twenty 20 World Cup, starting from April 30.

"I look at it as a way to get back into the one-day team and hopefully, longer down the track, a Test spot," the Fox Sports quoted Hussey, as saying.

"That's my ultimate goal. I think they (selectors) know what I can do," he added.

The 32-year-old further admitted that he would be lying if he said he had not considered retiring from first-class cricket and focusing on the Twenty20 leagues in India and England.

"They are options, but I still believe I have a big future in one-day cricket for Australia. I desperately want to play Test cricket," Hussey said.

"I thought I did reasonably well in domestic cricket and to not get selected in the first 25 was very disappointing, but I'm here now. I've got an opportunity to represent Australia in a (Twenty20) World Cup in the West Indies so things can't be too bad," he added. (ANI)
