Former Australian middle order batsman Michael Hussey will be helping South African cricket team in training session during ICC world cup 2015. He’ll guide players, especially batsmen how to deal in these Australian conditions and play on these wickets.
South Africa hasn’t won this world class tournament of cricket and they will be desperate this time to get it. Hussey’s role will be as a consultant in Proteas side during the six-weeks of 2015 world cup. Mike Hussey’s manager confirmed this news on cricket.com.au. South Africa coach is pleased to have Hussey as a consultant.
Russell Domingo said, “We’ve had some discussions with Mike Hussey about him joining us on a consultancy process. He’s a middle order batter of immense experience and knows conditions very well in Australia. He’ll play a very low-key role in the background.”
South Africa is in group B of tournament and they’ll play their opening game of world cup against Zimbabwe on 15 February at Hamilton. Proteas will also play practice games against Sri Lanka and New Zealand.
