Hussey admits that pressure is on him to perform in WC 2011

Hussey admits that pressure is on him to perform in WC 2011Bangalore, Mar. 12: Australia's Mr. Cricket - Mike Hussey - has candidly admitted that he faces some extra pressure to perform in the 2011 cricket World Cup after being rushed into the national squad as a replacement for New South Wales left-arm fast bowler Doug Bollinger.

Hussey, who is expected to be picked in the side for Sunday''s Group A match against Kenya in Bangalore, said of the pressure on him: "Maybe a little bit. I don''t want to try to put any extra pressure on myself."

The Sydney Morning Herald further quoted the 35-year-old, as saying: "I just want to go out there and prepare well, play my game. I know my game in the one-day team very well. It''s just important that I stick to those sort of things."

"Similar to the Ashes, there''s always so much speculation and so much pressure and so much hype and all of the distractions around the team. But for me I just try to put all of those things out of my mind and concentrate on what''s important and that''s doing my job in the team," Hussey said.

"To come back and play in this World Cup would be probably even more special, especially considering the setbacks I''ve had the last couple of months (including a hamstring injury which required surgery)," he said. (ANI)
