Injured Hussey in doubt for ODI series
Melbourne: Senior batsman Mike Hussey is in doubt for the rest of Australia`s one-day international series against England after sustaining a "significant" hamstring
injury, Cricket Australia said.
Hussey, 35, injured his left hamstring while taking a second run in Australia`s six-wicket victory in the opening match of the seven-game ODI series in Melbourne yesterday.
"Scans today have confirmed that Mike Hussey sustained a significant left hamstring injury during the first ODI against England at the MCG," Australia`s physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said.
"The course of management for this injury will be determined in the next 24 hours."
Shane Watson, who scored a match-winning unbeaten 161 to guide Australia to victory, said Hussey appeared okay at the time of his setback.
"I think he`s got a little bit of hammy stiffness, I probably pushed him one too many to (Paul) Collingwood," Watson said after the match.
"He seemed to be okay, there was no real talk about a runner, I think he`s alright."
Hussey`s injury comes as Australia`s squad for next month`s World Cup on the sub-continent is to be announced on tomorrow.
