New role for Mike Hussey

Former cricketers Michael Hussey and Ryan Harris have been roped in by Cricket Australia in the support staff ahead of the upcoming three-match T20I series each against Pakistan and Sri Lanka. 

While former middle-order Australian batsman Hussey has been named as a mentor, Harris will replace Troy Crooley as the team's bowling coach. It is to be noted that Crooley was in charge of Australia's five-match Ashes series against England. 

Reflecting on the new appointments, head coach Justin Langer said that both Hussey and Harris are capable of adding great value to the camp.
