South Africa coach Russell Domingo had earlier announced the appointment. Domingo said: "We've had some discussions with Mike Hussey about him joining us on a consultancy process."

He said the 39-year-old Hussey was "a middle order batter of immense experience and knows conditions very well in Australia. He'll play a very low-key role in the background."
