Finch replaces Hussey in ODI squad

David Hussey’s future as an international player appears bleak after he was dropped from Australia’s squad for the first two ODIs against West Indies, following on from his being left out of the T20 squad to play Sri Lanka. Hussey, 35, has been replaced by his younger Victorian team-mate Aaron Finch, 26, for the matches at the WACA on February 1 and 3 in a move the national selector John Inverarity said was made with an “eye on the future”.

The rest of Australia’s 13-man squad retained their places after the series-levelling victory against Sri Lanka in Hobart, a match in which Hussey was Australia’s second top scorer with 34. Over the five-match series, Hussey was third on the Australian run tally with 128 at an average of 32, and his quick unbeaten 60 in the opening match at the MCG was an important factor in Australia’s win.
