Hussey fit, ready for World Cup recall if needed

The 35-year-old Hussey, one of Australia's most important batsmen, was a controversial omission from the original 15-man squad because selectors were concerned about his fitness after surgery to repair an injured hamstring.

Mike Hussey says he's injury free and ready for a recall to Australia's World Cup squad. The 35-year-old Hussey, one of Australia's most important batsmen, was a controversial omission from the original 15-man squad because selectors were concerned about his fitness after surgery to repair an injured hamstring.

But with selectors leaving open a spot when paceman Doug Bollinger was injured and ruled out of the World Cup, there's been growing calls for Hussey's recall.

Hussey is set to return to domestic cricket with Western Australia and says "I am over my hamstring injury and will be ready if the selectors give me the call."
