David Hussey: A Brief Biography

David Hussey Biography


David Hussey is a former Australian cricketer who made his international cricket debut at the age of 30. He was a right-handed batsman and a part time right arm off spin bowler.

He is the brother of former Australian cricketer Michael Hussey. David was born on 15 July 1977 in Morley, Western Australia. He captained the Melbourne Stars in Big Bash League.

Background

Like his brother, he scored loads of runs at the domestic level before appearing at the international arena. He played regularly in both the Australian domestic championship and the English county circuit.

David used to play for Victoria Bushrangers in Australian domestic competition. In the 2003-04 season, he scored 212 not out while chasing a target of 455 in the fourth innings to beat New South Wales. That knock made his name and impressed the then skipper Steve Waugh.

However, he couldn’t continue his form in the longer format but kept impressing in the one-dayers and the T-20s. He received the Victoria’s one-day ‘Player of the Year’ award in 2005-06.

Debut

After registering a pile of runs at the domestic level, he was called to made his international debut in an off-season tour of West Indies.

He played his first ODI on 4 July 2008 at Basseterre. He scored 52 and built a partnership with his elder brother Michael Hussey. In the fifth match of the series, he scored a fifty of just 19 deliveries.

Rise to glory

He registered his first and only century in ODIs in 2009 when he scored 111 off 87 balls against Scotland. In the same year, he thrashed the South African bowlers all over the park in a T20I scoring 88 off just 44 deliveries.

After not getting selected in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup team, he was called in the team for the Sri Lankan tour. He scored 439 runs in the home tri-series involving Sri Lanka and India.

Low points

Despite having a first class average of around 53, he couldn’t find himself in the white jersey for Australia for even a single time. He also failed to perform in the ODIs for a long time as well, playing just 69 matches.

Club Career

He was an active member in the club cricket with participation in leagues like Indian Premier League and Big Bash League.

Due to his ability in the shorter format of the game, he was bought by the Kolkata Knight Riders in the first edition of IPL in 2008. He was one of the few successful batsmen of the team having scored 319 at an average of 29. He was bought by the Kings XI Punjab for $1.4 million in 2011.

He was signed by the Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League in 2011, for whom he played till 2017.

Retirement

David Hussey played his last ODI against Sri Lanka on 23 January 2013. He announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on 24 January 2017 after his team Melbourne Stars was knocked out in the BBL semi-final.
