Home / News / Daddy hero Uzzy would struggle to be Spiderman
26 August 2022
Since his return to the Australian Test team this year, Usman ‘Uzzy’ Khawaja has transformed into one of the most consistent and prolific batsmen in Test cricket.
A century at the SCG in January kicked off a remarkable run of form, which has seen Uzzy score four hundred’s in seven Tests, with a highest score of 160 and an incredible average of more than 98.
An elegant, graceful player with exquisite timing, Uzzie is a fan favourite right across Australia and in World Cricket.
But he’s also a favourite doting dad to little Aisha and newborn Ayla.
“The best thing about being a dad is the love you get from your kids,” Uzzy said. “When they come and cuddle you or give you a kiss … I’m not sure you can replicate that feeling. Also Aisha is at an age when she fetches dad things! That’s handy too!”
Uzzy has a slight fear of Spiders so I am the one who has to do the Spider removal in the house!
