Cricket has been the heartbeat of Mike Hussey's life since the age of 12, about the time that he found it more comfortable to bat left-handed than right. He adores the game, analyses it, researches it and respects it. Described as Bradmanesque, Hussey is the fastest batsmen ever to reach 1000 test runs, and he certainly knows a thing or two about how to put willow on leather. Since first donning the baggy green in early 2005, he has tormented opposition bowlers the world-over.
