Hussey defends Broad over `not walking` decision
London: Former Australian Test player Michael Hussey has defended England bowler Stuart Broad over the walking controversy during the summer Ashes, saying that Broad did the right thing by not walking during the first Test at Trent Bridge.
Broad has become a hate figure in Australia for standing his ground in the opening Test of the summer Ashes series in England, with Australian coach Darren Lehmann famously branding him a `cheat`.
However, Metro.co.uk reports that Hussey believes Broad did nothing wrong by not walking during the match, adding that had he been in Broad`s place, he would have done exactly the same.
Hussey also said that Broad was well within his rights to stand there and let the umpire make his decision, adding that he never did have a problem with that as he was never a walker himself.
Stating that Broad will relish the reception he will receive once the series starts on November 21 in Brisbane, Hussey further said he is sure that the bowler will be able to handle anything that comes at him and may be even spurred by a possible sledging.
