Legendary Australian batsman, Michael Hussey aka Mr. Cricket, has admitted that he is ready to play under any circumstances that the team management of CSK subjects him to. He was brought back to him home camp in this year’s auction in February at Bengaluru after he had an average last season with the Mumbai Indians where he could manage only a modest total of 209 in 9 matches.
In the earlier season, Hussey had a fabulous time with the CSK from 2008-13 where he amassed a massive total of 1691 runs in a total of 46 matches which is a sheer testimony to the fact that CSK rightly brought him back for a decent 1. 5 crore this year.
The 39 year old feels that he is at such a stage of his game where he is ready to play under whichever conditions the team, coach and the skipper want him to. He stressed upon having a chat with MSD and Fleming and then shall play his role accordingly.
Though he might have retired from international action in the early times of 2013, he has kept himself associated with the gentlemen’s game by being a part of various T20 leagues like IPL and the BBL over the course of years.
Hussey feels thoroughly rejuvenated and is keenly looking forward to this season of IPL with the whistle phodu gang. He was also full praise for his skipper MSD, lauding him for his inhuman composure during the nervy moments of the game and for maintaining a convivial atmosphere throughout the camp no matter what the end result of a game comes out to be.
Mr. Cricket strongly asserted the fact that Dhoni has got a staunch cricketing mind and he contemplates the players and situations brilliantly. He stressed on the fact that Dhoni is one of the most unnerved captain he’s ever played under and also successes and failures hardly get him on his nerves.
Regarding India’s world cup campaign, Hussey opined that Ravindra Jadeja was just not in his prime form and coming at number 7 is a huge responsibility. He feels that Jadeja is a very talented player and he’s got the ability to turnaround the course of the match both with the bat and the ball.
Hussey wholeheartedly lauded the Australian team’s world cup quest and concluded that the balance and depth in the present has been phenomenal and their exemplary display as a unit was a treat to watch as a native Australian.
