Hussey's plea to selectors over Khawaja

  Hussey's plea to selectors over Khawaja Michael Hussey has urged Australian selectors to either pick No.3 Usman Khawaja in every Test, or not at all. Khawaja has been in and out of the Test team depending on the conditions, snubbed by selectors in five of Australia’s six Tests played on the subcontinent in 2017.Selectors opted for Shaun Marsh who they felt was better equipped to face spin bowling.But the left-hander earned a recall to the team for this Ashes series after impressing in the early Sheffield Shield rounds prior to the first Test.Hussey, the former Australian Test batsman, says Khawaja deserves to know where he stands.

Simon Jones famously did the same thing back in 2002/03, and he required surgery that took him out of the game for a very long time.

Khawaja went off for a check but did eventually return to the field.
