Australia Seeks to Replace Injured Hussey, Hauritz for World Cup

Australia applied to Cricket World Cup organizers for permission to replace injured batsman Mike Hussey and spin bowler Nathan Hauritz in its 15-man squad.

Cricket Australia said today it sought approval for Callum Ferguson to replace Hussey and Jason Krejza to take Hauritz’s spot. Hussey was ruled out with a hamstring tendon injury and Hauritz by a shoulder dislocation.

Selectors “determined that the best strategy to ensure a successful campaign is for Australia to enter the tournament with a fully fit squad of fifteen from the first game,” Chairman of Selectors Andrew Hilditch said in an e-mailed statement.

Captain Ricky Ponting is “going well” in his rehabilitation following a finger fracture, Australian team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris added.

Australia starts its bid to win a fourth straight World Cup title Feb. 21 against Zimbabwe in Ahmedabad. The tournament will be co-hosted by India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh from Feb. 19 to April 2.
