Bollinger, Hussey's delay could be costly for Australia

7:19 pm on 27 September 2010

The Australian cricket team will finally be able to welcome Doug Bollinger and Mike Hussey when they arrive in India late on Monday after a Twenty20 Champions League adventure that cut deeply into Test preparations.

Hussey hit an unbeaten 51 as he and Bollinger enjoyed a win in the final in Johannesburg, their Indian side Chennai beating South Africa's Warriors by eight wickets on Sunday night.

They have only a handful of days to get ready for the first Test against India at Mohali.
