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!
