Australia’s Michael Hussey said he has absolutely no problems in representing his country in all the three formats of the game.

 

He said that despite a crammed international schedule in place, he would like to play in everything possible for the country.

 

"I want to try and play as much as I can. It took me so long to get one opportunity to play for Australia, so I would like to play as much as I possibly can because I know my shelf-life is a bit shorter than other guys who were able to start a bit younger," Hussey said.

 

“I think probably a few of the guys were just throwing it around, but for me personally I enjoy all forms of the game.

 

"I love Test cricket and I love one-day international cricket, but I've really enjoyed playing Twenty20 cricket as well, both for Australia and in the IPL. It's a difficult choice to make if you had to, but for me I didn't really want to make that choice," he added.

 

The 34-year-old was forced to take a break for the recent limited-overs series against Pakistan and he also missed the Indian Premier League in South Africa in an effort to freshen himself up.

 

Hussey was a key contributor in Australia's 5-0 Ashes whitewash in 2006-07. The left-hander is eyeing another winning contribution when the first match of the five-Test series against England commences in July, this year.

 

"Everyone is going to be very keen to do well because I think we're all shooting for places in the first Test team. Probably other than the captain, vice-captain and a couple of other key players, I don't think anybody can rest on their laurels.

 

"For me personally I'm really keen to get a couple of big scores and get the confidence up high coming into that first Test," he was quoted as saying in 'The Age'.
