Hayden must come out of retirement: Former CA Conditioner
The 40-year-old is all set to represent Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League and Campbell felt that Hayden still has a lot to offer to Australian cricket.
“Mate, my only request, make yourself available for the Aussie T20 team for next year's World Cup. Australia would love to see you take us to another World Cup win that would make it your third,” Campbell, a valued member of the team's support staff between 2000 and 2005, said.
Campbell, who supervised Hayden's training during his Indian Premier League career, said that the veteran batsman had committed himself to a gruelling 16-week pre-season training program to get back to shape.
“For the last 16 weeks, Matthew has made it his priority to get his body and cricket skills right for Twenty20 cricket,” Campbell was quoted as saying by 'Sydney Morning Herald'.
“He's been out of the game for a bit over a year, so he made it a conscious decision to get himself into shape for the Big Bash. He did two blocks of six weeks and one of four to prepare and it has involved three gym sessions a week; two running; at least two cricket skills sessions, but sometimes more; two physiotherapy and massage sessions to ensure everything was right. He's also had weekly acupuncture,” Campbell said.
