The selectors should have taken his word when he said he would be fit be for the worldcup but that's all a thing of the past now, the more annoying thing is Chappell telling him to quit which is absurd tbh.
Hussey is probably the only player from the older lot who actually deserves his place on merit, the rest are pretty much clinging to their spots due to achievements from the past, there is nothing wrong in blooding young players as long as you are picking the right blokes but obviously that hasn't been happening either.
I think Chappell is an absolute idiot he just doesn't understand the importance of balancing a side with youth and experience, surely if he had his way he would hand all the Australian U-19's a baggy green cap and push them into the deep end.
Chappell has stated that he didn't say Hussey should retire.
This person once replaced Saurav Ganguly by Venugopal Rao...so Ikki has a good chance I suppose...
"I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."

fmd, the guy is light years ahead of so many people in the game he should play until he's dead and even then, embalmed and propped up bits of wood, he'd still put in his best.
