Hussey: Wants a recall
Australia batsman Mike Hussey is waiting to see whether he will get the nod to replace Doug Bollinger at the World Cup.
The Australia selectors have opted to delay any announcement of who will come in for Bollinger, who has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament.
However Hussey, who was initially left out the squad due to a hamstring tear, is now hoping to prove his fitness to earn a recall.
"I am really confident of getting through Western Australia's upcoming Sheffield Shield match against Queensland and feel I am right on track," said Hussey.
"I have been trying to take my focus away from playing in the World Cup but I am over my hamstring injury and will be ready if the selectors give me the call.
"I'd love the chance to play in the World Cup but I think the selectors have made the right call by waiting to see how we go over the next game or two before sending someone over to replace Doug Bollinger.
"Everyone's going really well at the moment so there is no need to rush into that decision. Hopefully, by holding off, we can get a better idea of what we might need to improve on later in the tournament."
