Huss does not need much of an introduction, a legend of the aussie game and one of my heros growing up. He was widely regarded as one of the and hardest workers in world cricket and a very intense man. Along with this came many internal battles, he was constantly battling low self-belief and openly admits he crossed the line of pushing things too far. After getting dropped from the WA team he found a new sense of balance and freedom which then catapulted his career to playing for Australia and scoring thousands of runs across all 3 formats. He goes into great detail around his training strategies and mental routines and I'm sure you will all get a lot out of this one.
