Michael Hussey endeared himself to the Australian cricketing public further recently by expressing his burning desire to help return Australia to the top of the pile in the Test rankings, an opinion which is shared by many within Australia.

For an Australian public who have been so privileged by having such incredible teams throughout the years, they have grown accustomed to being the best team in the world, which has made the last few years even harder to swallow. However, there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel, with the present Australian team showing signs that they are indeed up to the challenge of reclaiming their title as the best Test team in the world.

Hussey went on to describe every series now as just a stepping stone to the greater goal of achieving that ranking of number 1, explaining how the team talk about reclaiming that honour every day. Hussey is an exceptionally driven cricketer, and one who really does wear the badge of Australia with a serious amount of pride.

He is a man who had to wait until he was in his thirties before getting a sniff at international level, so when he finally made the leap, he made no mistake in making up for lost time. For a while Hussey’s average hovered around the 80 mark, almost Bradman-esque, but as his career has panned out, he has averaged out around the 50 mark, which is still extremely respectable. He is still in the side on pure merit, and with the determination that Hussey possesses, it is likely he will help his side to that position they crave.
