Melbourne, Aug 17 (UNI) The Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) backed multi-billion dollar Indian Premier League (IPL) has created a new sensation in the game and now other countries are, too, dreaming of organising Twenty20 tournaments.

Talented middle-order batsman David Hussey is also hoping an Australian-based Twenty20 league becomes a reality soon.

''If we get all the international players from Australia playing Twenty20 -- and possibly a marquee player as well-- it'll definitely be a massive hit for Australian cricket,'' Hussey said.

''Word on the street is that they're looking at it. Imagine playing in front of 50,000 at the 'G supporting a Melbourne franchise?'' Hussey, whose experience in the IPL with the Kolkata franchise was explosive, is training with his Victorian teammates and will go to the Australian training camp in Queensland next week.
