Australia batsman Mike Hussey faces a battle to be fit for the start of next month's World Cup after suffering a "significant" hamstring injury during Sunday's ODI against England, Cricket Australia said on Monday.

Hussey sustained the injury during his 21 run knock in Australia's successful run chase against England in the first of the seven one-day internationals.

"Scans have confirmed that Mike Hussey sustained a significant left hamstring injury during the first ODI against England at the MCG," Australian physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said in a statement. "The course of management for this injury will be determined in the next 24 hours."

World champions Australia are scheduled to name their final 15 member squad for the Feb 19-April 2 World Cup on Tuesday.
