Hussey's IPL participation in doubt

February 22, 2008
David Hussey, the Victoria batsman, may have been purchased for US$625,000 by the Kolkata franchise in the Indian Premier League's auction, but his county side Nottinghamshire have insisted that he is contracted to play for them this season.

Hussey's participation in the IPL - which runs from April 18 to June 1 - will see him miss the first five County Championship matches and eight games in the Friends Provident Trophy. He even outdid his more famous brother and Test player Michael, who went for $350,000

However, David Hussey was reportedly available for the entire tournament, which perhaps was one of the reasons why he sold for a higher price than the likes of Ricky Ponting and Matthew Hayden, who might miss the IPL if touring for Australia.

Hussey has so far played only one Twenty20 international for Australia, but possesses an impressive record in the shorter format, with 1144 runs at an average of 30.91 and strike-rate of 141.93.
