Perth (Australia), Jan.17 (ANI): Australian middle-order batsman Mike Hussey’s place in his country’s World Cup squad is in doubt, as he is reportedly facing at least a month on the sidelines with a hamstring tear.

Scans on Hussey’s left hamstring have revealed the left-hander has ripped part of a tendon off the bone near the gluteus muscle under his buttocks, media reports suggested.

Hussey, 35, suffered the injury while batting in Australia’s one-day victory over England at the MCG on Sunday.
