Michael Hussey slams India vs Australia 5-match T20I series right after Cricket World Cup

'I certainly feel like this T20 series has been devalued. It doesn't cheapen the World Cup but it certainly cheapens this series,' says Michael Hussey.

Michael Hussey slams India vs Australia 5-match T20I series right after Cricket World Cup

Not just fans but many former cricketers were unable to wrap their heads around a 5-match T20I series between India and Australia just 3 days after the Cricket World Cup.

Michael Hussey is the latest to voice his concern. During a conversation with Sen Radio on Wednesday, the former Aussie cricketer said, 'I certainly feel like this T20 series has been devalued. It doesn't cheapen the World Cup but it certainly cheapens this series.'

'There would be a number of guys who were at the World Cup (for both nations) would probably be in their T20 teams. They got home to either prepare for a Test series or simply to have a break. This is certainly not the best Australian T20 team going up against the best India T20 team'

'It's just amazing how much (cricket boards) pack on a calendar to play so much cricket. It is physically and mentally impossible to play all of the tournaments that are going on,' Hussey concluded.

Following the World Cup's huge success, Hussey believes one-day internationals should play a larger role on the international calendar. "I might be in the minority here but I think (ODI cricket) is a great game. It caters to so many different types of players (and) over the course of the 100 overs, the better team has more of a chance to come out on top.

"The last World Cup was a great advertisement for the game. There was some unbelievable cricket played. There were some stories to come out (of the World Cup) that will live for 100 years," he added.
