Sydney, May 22 (ANI): Aussies Clint McKay and David Hussey are set to play English county cricket's Twenty20 tournament.

McKay has signed for Yorkshire with Hussey joining Nottinghamshire as the team's captain in the shortest form of the game.

Hussey has extensive experience in T-20 matches and is likely to be in top-form having recently played the semi-finals of the T-20 World Cup against England.

McKay, who has never represented Australia in a T-20 match will also be an asset to his team as he too is fresh from the victory of his team in Australia's domestic T-20 tournament.

"I am really excited about coming to Yorkshire and playing in a young side that has enjoyed such a positive start to the season," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted McKay, as saying.

Hussey will be taking over the reigns from Chris Read, who is all praises for him, "Captaining in Twenty20 cricket can be very intense and I feel that it's best for me and the team if I take a break and draw on David Hussey's experience," Read said.

"He'll have my full support and the support of every player in the dressing room," he added. (ANI)
