Michael Hussey receives massive honour, added into Hall of Fame

Apart from Michael Hussey, the former Aussie women's captain Lyn Larsen was also added in the Hall of Fame list.

Widely known as Mr Cricket, Australia’s Michael Hussey is officially a cricket legend as he is inducted into the country’s Cricket Hall of Fame. On the day of the start of the Boxing Day Test between Australia and Pakistan, Cricket Australia made the announcement and included former women’s skipper Lyn Larsen in the list, as per a report in Fox Cricket.

“The name Michael Hussey is synonymous with the hard work, skill, and dedication needed to succeed at the highest level and his inspirational career is testament to the values to which all great players aspire,” CA chief Nick Hockley said.

Reacting to the honour, Hussey said, “I was shocked when I first found out … I didn’t really know what to say. I was stunned really. I was happy to play just one Test match for Australia growing up, so to be in the Hall of Fame, I will truly cherish it for the rest of my life.”

Hussey, during his career, had played 79 Tests and 185 ODIs, and was a sensation in T20Is as well, averaging close to 38 in the format. He was also part of the Aussie team that won the 2007 World Cup in the Caribbean.
