Michael Hussey has enormous respect for Virender Sehwag and insisted that the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' can "never be out of form", but at the same time hoped that Virat Kohli has a bad day in office when Australia take on India in their Super Eights match here on Friday.
"I would never say that Virender Sehwag is out of form. He can miss out a couple of times but we all know that every time he misses out he is closer to the next big one. Normally, when he scores big runs, he scores them quickly so I will never say Sehwag is out of form," Hussey senior told mediapersons at the end of Australia's practice session at the P Sara Oval ground today.
On Kohli's splendid run in international cricket, Hussey said: "Yeah I am not exactly sure what our plans are but even if I know I am not going to reveal them. He is obviously at a purple patch in the manner that he is playing. Every batsman tends to miss out on some stage and I hope that he is going to miss out (against us)."
When there is Australia, the topic of Harbhajan Singh can't be far behind, but Hussey feels the Aussies are far better equipped than the Englishmen to tackle the off-spinner.
"Of, course he (Harbhajan) is going to strengthen the team. He is a class act and has been that for a long period of time. He is someone that we respect but when you play Twenty20, you got to be aggressive as well and try and put him under pressure," he said.
"He did a fantastic job the other night but I think we can play better than the English team," Hussey said of Harbhajan, who demolished England with figures of 4-12 in the final group match.
