David Hussey hopes for a Test debut

Melbourne, Feb 8: David Hussey will be turning 35 in July this year but the veteran batsman has not stopped dreaming of playing in the next World Cup in 2015 and also making a late Test debut for Australia.

Hussey has been a vital player for Australia over the years with his consistent all-round performance but unlike his older brother Michael Hussey, a Test berth and World Cup triumph still ditched him.

"You want to be in a winning World Cup, it's probably second to playing Test cricket for Australia," said Hussey, who will be 37 by the time of the next World Cup.

"It (playing in 2015 World Cup) is realistic. I want to keep doing well. If you keep doing well you give the selectors a hard task to make that phone call to say you're not in the team. If I keep doing well and contributing to the team's success, you just never know. It's very hard to drop someone from a series win," he was quoted as saying by the 'Sydney Morning Herald'.

Hussey has taken much inspiration from older brother Micheal for the way he fought back last summer, after being criticised for poor performance ahead of the Ashes series.
