Australian all-rounder David Hussey admitted he may have to bide his time before he is a regular fit in Australia's ODI team.

 

The right-hander smashed 111 from 83 balls in Edinburgh as Australia secured a 189-run win to start their busy schedule of limited-overs fixtures.

 

The visitors will play two Twenty20s and seven ODIs against England to end their tour of UK before heading to South Africa for next month's Champions Trophy.

 

Hussey, though is likely only to feature in the Twenty20 games after he was left out of Australia's squad for the 50-over matches against England.

 

"I've had a mix of games in Twenty20 and one-dayers in the past year but I haven't really taken the chance with both hands," he said.

 

"I've played 20-odd games in ODIs and I just kept getting out, it was as simple as that.

 

"So for me to get an opportunity today and to take full toll, I'm so happy that I got a century.

 

"It was my first hundred and it's great to get it here in Scotland on a great wicket and at a great ground."

 

Another bone of contention for Hussey to get into the ODI side is his competition with youngsters like Callum Ferguson, Cameron White and David Warner.

 

"I just want to get back into the team," he added.

 

"I know that there are many good players floating around at the moment. Ferguson is playing really well, Cameron White is playing well. It is hard to get in the team.

 

"If I get the opportunity I want to get back in there, but I just have to bide my time."
