SYDNEY (Agencies) - Michael Hussey says his axing from Australia's squad for the cricket World Cup was premature and he could have overcome a hamstring injury to play in the later stages of the tournament. Hussey was dropped from the squad along with spinner Nathan Haurtiz but said he should have been given more of an opportunity to prove his fitness. He cited the example of all-rounder Symonds was picked for the 2007 Cup despite a serious arm injury. Symonds recovered to play a vital role for the team that went on to win the tournament Hussey's only chance of being a part of Australia's campaign at this month's World Cup is if another player is injured. "I feel like I maybe deserved that chance to have a bit of a go at it, but they obviously saw differently so it's disappointing," he said. "It probably just shows that you can't look too far ahead. You've just got to try and enjoy every opportunity you get to play for Australia-every tournament, every World Cup, every game that you get. You've got to enjoy every one because it can sort of all end pretty quickly."
