Australian batsman David Hussey has confirmed he will be re-joining Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club in 2013.
Hussey will arrive in the East Midlands in time for the Outlaws’ Twenty20 campaign, and will also be available for five County Championship matches, and four CB40 fixtures.
Hussey first joined Nottinghamshire in 2004 and is returning to Trent Bridge this summer for his eighth stint with the county.
Despite not representing Australia in Test cricket, Hussey has an outstanding record in first-class cricket. The 35 year-old has scored nearly 13,000 runs at an average of 53.28, with a highest score of 275. Hussey does have international honours, having played in 69 ODI’s, and 39 Twenty20’s for Australia.
Speaking of his move back to England, Hussey said: “There are lots of things I enjoy about playing for Notts, but the characters in the dressing room, the atmosphere at Trent Bridge and the fact that the team are always competitive are the main reasons.”
Nottinghamshire will be hoping with the addition of Hussey they will again be able to compete for the County Championship which they won in 2010.
