Michael Hussey Calls for Australia Selectors to Pick Traditional Opener as David Warner’s Replacement

1 min read

Michael Hussey has cautioned Australian selectors on picking a makeshift opener to replace David Warner, preferring a specialist opener who has done well in Sheffield Shield cricket. Hussey, who made his Test debut at 30 despite opening in first-class cricket for Western Australia and Northamptonshire, played most of his Tests in the middle-order, scoring over 6000 runs. He emphasized the importance of an experienced opener due to the difficulty of the role. The main candidates for Warner’s spot are Marcus Harris, Cameron Bancroft, and Matt Renshaw, with Hussey stating that whoever is dominating in the Sheffield Shield should be rewarded. Hussey spent time coaching with the Australian team ahead of the Perth Test and expressed interest in working with them again in the future.
