Hussey glad to be back with ‘astute’ Dhoni


Former Australia batsman Mike Hussey is excited to be back with the Chennai Super Kings for the upcoming IPL season, and is glad to be back under the helm of skipper MS Dhoni and coach Stephen Fleming.

Hussey played for the Mumbai Indians in the 2014 season, but after finding most of his success with CSK years previously, he is pleased to be able to return. He heaped praise on his leadership duo.

Hussey said on the IPL website: "They both have very astute cricketing brains and they think very clearly under pressure. As far as their relationship goes, it is very good for them and the team because it is very open and honest.

"They communicate very clearly with each other and the players. Also, while they are open and sensitive towards each other's thoughts, things never get too emotional.

"They maintain that control and balance very well. It has helped create an atmosphere of assuredness in the change room. There is a lot of honesty without the unwanted emotional stress.

"It is amazing to be back here. I have a lot of great friends here and so many incredible memories."
