“I’m thrilled to be able to continue my love of Australian cricket through this role”
Former Australia batsman Michael Hussey has been appointed as a consultant batting coach at the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane.
While Hussey’s exposure to the national team will be limited, he will be working closely with the national performance squad, Australia A and the Australian women’s team.
“I’m thrilled to be able to continue my love of Australian cricket through this role,” Hussey said. “The opportunity to work with the country’s finest young talent is exciting and I’m looking forward to getting started with the National Performance Squad in Brisbane in the coming month.”
National Cricket Centre head coach Troy Cooley welcomed Hussey aboard, and said: “Mike has played all around the world and mastered the art of playing in all three formats. To be able to use his skills, knowledge and outstanding leadership skills to help develop the next generation of Australian players is just fantastic.
“Mike’s involvement and contribution to a successful era of Australian cricket makes him the complete package and our young up-and-coming male and female players will benefit greatly from working with him.”
