Michael Hussey is renowned to be as one among the few top overseas players to have regularly featured in the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) and he believes that his bond with it has got stronger over the years having played the role of a so called “mentor” to young Indian players.

Hussey, who has played six seasons for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and one for Mumbai Indians, will again go under the hammer during this year’s auction and is hopeful of playing in his eighth season in the league and fervently wishes that something new is awaits for him.

Known as ‘Mr. Cricket’ for his consistency and fool proof average in all forms of International Cricket during the phase in which he played 79 Tests, 185 ODIs and 38 T20 Internationals for Australia between 2004 and 2013, Hussey is confident of bringing something to the table if he is picked by any of the franchises.

For Hussey, it’s the assortment of players from across the countries and exchange of cricketing ideas that have made IPL such an appealing product.

In the ongoing Big Bash League, he has been successful in two out of six innings (96 runs off 60 balls versus Brisbane Heats and a cameo score 36 run not out off just 21 balls against the Perth Scorchers). Asked about his state of mind, Hussey said that he feels perfectly match-fit both physically and mentally.

He is a few months short of his 40th birthday but he feels that the competitive streak in him is not yet satiated and he is not ready to call time on his T20 career.

He does not even know of how the feeling is going to be this time, mentioned Hussey when asked. While he loves the contest and is fit enough and still contributing to the team he would like to continue playing, concluded Hussey.
