Hussey doesn't like Mr Cricket

Having ended his lean patch by scoring 502 runs in six Tests this season, the smile is back on Michael Hussey’s face. One thing he isn’t too pleased about, though, is his nickname – Mr Cricket. It was given to him during his time with Northamptonshire and when a journalist addressed Hussey as “Mr Cricket” in Brisbane on Wednesday, he was quick to react. “I don't really like the nickname,” Hussey said. “But it's the sort of nickname that if you show everyone you dislike it so much they're going to keep calling you it. So I try and ignore it as much as possible.”
