PERTH - Australian middle-order batsman Mike Hussey’s place in his country’s World Cup squad is in doubt, as he is reportedly facing at least a month on the sidelines with a hamstring tear.
Scans on Hussey’s left hamstring have revealed the left-hander has ripped part of a tendon off the bone near the gluteus muscle under his buttocks, media reports suggested.
Hussey, 35, suffered the injury while batting in Australia’s one-day victory over England at the MCG on Sunday, Fox Sports reports.
Australia’s World Cup campaign commences against Zimbabwe on February 21 in India. (ANI)
