Hussey wants Aussie revival

April 07, 2012 15:24:05 UK

Michael Hussey has said that his focus in the upcoming three-match Test series will be on reviving Australia's fortunes in Test cricket.

Australia have bounced back under Michael Clarke.

In the recent ODI and Twenty20 series on the Caribbean tour, Hussey scored runs in sporadic fashion.

The 36-year-old veteran, who made two half-centuries in five ODI and two T20 matches against the West Indies, is still going strong in all three forms of the game for Australia despite his advancing years.

He believes that the secret behind his secured position in the team is that he always puts the team over his personal interest.

Australia are rated as 9.00 to reclaim the Ashes in 2013, with England 1.05.

Hussey said: "Every series is very important, no matter who you're playing, where you're playing. I think for everyone, no matter whether you're my age or you're a younger guy coming in, I think it's important for every player ... I don't think you can come in with that sort of mindset, thinking you've got to perform or else.

"I think it's about trying to do your job as best you can, contribute to the team having success and believing that you're a part of something moving forward, trying to get the team back to number one."

Don't forget all of the fantastic markets we have to offer, including In-Play betting, can be accessed on your mobile phone with the new and improved Mobile at bet365.

We've unearthed some fantastic young fast bowlers.

Mike Hussey

After last year's disastrous Ashes and World Cup defeats, Australia have bounced back in style under the leadership of Michael Clarke and are unbeaten in all the Tests and ODI series ever since.

Hussey is content with the way Australian team is performing and he wants the improvement to continue. He added: "I still believe we've got a little way to go, there's no question about that. But we are going in the right direction.

"We've unearthed some fantastic young fast bowlers, which will hopefully only get better as time goes by."
