Michael Hussey has been called to replace injured Doug Bollinger in the current Australian World Cup. Australian selectors have decided that the veteran Western Australian is the best replacement. "Michael has successfully recovered from major hamstring surgery and is seen as someone who is capable of assisting Australia as we strive to win this tournament," chairman of selectors Andrew Hilditch said. "His skill, experience, ability against spin and the fact that he provides a left-hand option in the middle order is seen as critical in our World Cup defence now that he has successfully recovered from injury." He would be a great asset for the Australian team and I hope that he contributes well to the team's performance.
