Cricket over the years has witnessed several Brother Duos taking International cricket by storm. They share the same passion and dream of doing well while representing their nation at the highest level. Fair to say cricket runs in their blood. There also have been instances where the brothers have got together to clinch victory for their country.
Recently, the Hussey brothers, Michael Hussey and David Hussey had a fun time as both fired shots at each other during the Big Bash League (BBL) 2022-23 clash between the Perth Scorchers and the Melbourne Stars at the Perth Stadium on Thursday, December 29. Michael Hussey was in the commentary box alongside Brian Lara and Corbin Middlemas and that is when the cameras suddenly focused on David, who was down at the boundary rope for a chat.
“G’day David it’s your brother Michael here, merry Christmas,” said Mike Hussey.
“You’re no brother of mine, you’re a disgrace of a human being, I’ve heard what you’ve been saying about me. You and I are finished,” replied David Hussey.
“Say G’day to mum for us,” said Michael.
“She doesn’t like you mate, you’re out of the will. You’re out,” said David as he created a laughter riot in the commentary panel.
Another disappointing performance by the Melbourne Stars
Talking about the match, David must be concerned about his team’s disappointing performance after Scorchers got the better of them by six wickets with more than two overs to spare. Stars opted to bat first after winning the toss but couldn’t get a perfect start as they lost their 3 batters on the score of 34.
Perth’s bowlers set it up by restricting the Stars to a below-par score of 135 runs. Jhye Richardson was the highest wicket-taker for the scorchers as he took 4 wickets in his 4-over quota.
Chasing the target of 136 runs, Scorchers’ opener Faf du Plessis fell cheaply and Aaron Hardie found the going hard but Adam Lyth kept the scoreboard ticking. The asking rate was very much under control and in walked Ashton Turner. The skipper wasted little time getting off the blocks and went after the Stars' bowlers to bring up a 24-ball half-century and helped the team to win the match.
