Michael Hussey: I Will Ensure India’s Tour Of Australia Goes Ahead As Per The Schedule

Former Australian legend Michael Hussey has said that he will ensure that team India tour Australia as per the schedule later this year. Earlier, Hussey had said that the ICC T20 World Cup which is scheduled to take place this year in Australia might prove on to be a logistical nightmare for the host country.

Notably, a decision on the future of T20 World Cup is yet to be taken and reports have suggested that hosting a 16-team event during these extraordinary times would be an upheaval task. Cricket Australia is expected to make 70-80 million dollars from T20 World Cup while its earning from India series is expected to be somewhere around 300 million dollars. Hussey agreed to the fact that India series is a big one for CA.

Now, Michael Hussey has said that he will make sure that team India’s tour of Australia, which will take place later this year, stays onboard as per the scheduled dates.

Michael Hussey Opens Up On India’s Tour Of Australia

Apart from the financial aspect of the game, Michael Hussey also talked about the actions which are in store for the fans during the Australian summers.

“Cricket Australia has been preparing themselves for the worst scenario and that is why they have been furloughing staff and look to cut back at a lot of programs because in case the T20 World Cup and India series is not possible…this is what Cricket Australia base their whole 4-year financial cycle on is an Indian series because that is where they make all their money. So they will be putting a lot of effort and time and energy and talking to the government to make sure that the Indian series goes ahead. That’s the big one for them,” Michael Hussey told Chetan Narula on his YouTube channel.

“I am salivating already on the prospect of this series. India were sensational last time they came to the Australian shores. It was great to see them win as the win made them believe they can win in Australian conditions. However, it will be a different series this time. Throwing David Warner and Steve Smith into the squad make that team much stronger. Indian bowlers will have to work hard, no questions. But the ban on Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft exposed few players to Test cricket. That gave Marnus Labuschagne, Travis Head chance in Test cricket and even Matthew Wade got a chance to make a comeback,” Michael Hussey added.

“It gave them that confidence that they are good enough to play on that level. It’s not easy to play in Test cricket and dominate. It builds the depth of the Australian team as well. I think the Australian team in this series will be far stronger. Steve Smith, David Warner, world class bowlers like Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Nathan Lyon, then other guys having more experience this time will help,” Michael Hussey said.

Team India To Tour Australia Later This Year

India’s tour will begin with a T20 International match on October 11 at Brisbane. The other two T20I matches will be played on October 14 (Canberra) and October 17 (Adelaide). The four-match Test series begins on December 3 at Brisbane.

India are then scheduled to play a day/night Test from December 11 to 15 in Adelaide. The third and fourth Tests will be held in Melbourne (December 26-30) and Sydney (January 3 to 7). The ODI series is scheduled to begin on January 12 in Perth, followed by matches on January 15 (Melbourne) and January 17 (Sydney).

You Should Never Write Off Champions – Michael Hussey On MS Dhoni’s Future

Former Australian batsman Michael Hussey reckons that one should not write off a champion player like MS Dhoni. Hussey has spent some quality time while playing for the Chennai Super Kings under the leadership of MS Dhoni. Hence, Hussey knows Dhoni from close quarters and feels it would be early to make any kind of prediction. Meanwhile, Dhoni had last played in the Indian colors back in the semi-final loss against New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup.

Subsequently, Dhoni has not played any kind of professional cricket since then and he also made himself unavailable for national selection. In fact, a lot of cricket boffins had stated that the IPL 2020 will be instrumental in the return of Dhoni to the national team. However, the tournament has been indefinitely postponed.

MS Dhoni has all the experience

Hussey had recently stated that he hopes that Dhoni once again plays for the Indian team. There is no doubt that Dhoni will once again play for the CSK in the IPL but Dhoni’s future in the Indian colors looks bleak. However, Hussey feels it would be a mistake to write off a champion player like MS.

Hussey believes this is a welcome break for MS Dhoni and if he can stay at the top of his fitness, then there is no doubt that he can still play at the top level. Dhoni knows his game and it might take him some time before he can hit the ground running.

“I am obviously not an Indian selector but I don’t think you can discount MSD. You should never write off champions and champion players, and he has given so much to the country as a player and leader,” Hussey said during ”HotSpot: The Cricket Podcast” by Chetan Narula and Deep Dasgupta.

“He (Dhoni) still keeps himself in very good shape so as long as he keeps himself fit and healthy, and maybe this break is really helpful for him to rest and get a break especially from the physical side of things…because he has so much experience.

“It will take time to get his skills to the required level but not as long as other players who don’t know their game as well. He has a great understanding of his own game and the whole game in general. I am not worried about the skilled perspective,” Hussey added.

Dhoni has all the experience under his belt and it is known that if there is someone who can make a heroic comeback, it is him. The wicket-keeper batsman hasn’t played for a long time and it would be interesting to note how he performs in the forthcoming IPL, whenever it happens.

ICC T20 World Cup 2020: Michael Hussey Reckons Staging The Tournament Can Prove To Be A Nightmare

Former Australian legend, Michael Hussey has said that holding the ICC T20 World Cup as per the schedule might prove to be a logistical nightmare for the hosts. Cricket Australia itself has said that it is a bit “unrealistic” to stage the T20 World Cup as per schedule in the current circumstances but the ICC is yet to take a final call on the matter.

The ICC T20 World Cup 2020 is scheduled to take place later this year in Australia in the month of October-November. However, due to the disturbed cricket schedule as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, there have been deliberations that suggest that the ICC T20 World Cup might be postponed.

Now, Michael Hussey has said that staging the tournament as per the schedule will prove to be a nightmare for the hosts, Australia.

Michael Hussey Opens Up On The Prospect Of The ICC T20 World Cup

“I am really fearful about the T20 World Cup to be honest and the reason for that is I think it is okay to bring out one team to play international cricket and get them to isolate and stay safe and prepare well for a series,” he said in a podcast called ‘HotSpot’.

“But having to bring a number of teams and getting them to isolate to prepare and then move around the country to different venues I think that will be a logistical nightmare. From what we are hearing perhaps the T20 World Cup will have to be postponed for 2021 or even 2022,” said the southpaw.

I Am Positive About India’s Tour Of Australia: Michael Hussey

The India tour of Australia that has been scheduled after the T20 World Cup is likely to go ahead as per the plan, according to Hussey.

“I am a lot more positive about the Indian tour of Australia going ahead and the reason is bringing one team to tour here and getting them to a hub is easier. For example, Adelaide Oval has just built a hotel connected to the stadium, so the Indian team could base themselves there, train and prepare for a series, and play against Australia,” Michael Hussey said.

“We have all got our fingers crossed, as we know that this pandemic keeps throwing these curve balls and we need to adapt and move quickly,” said Hussey.

MS Dhoni Knows What Needs To Be Done To Get Ready For IPL: Michael Hussey

Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni has not played an international game ever since India’s exit at the 2019 World Cup tournament in England. Since then, he made himself unavailable for the national team selection and his future in the Indian national cricket team has not been confirmed yet.

From Harbhajan Singh to Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma, players and cricket pundits spoke a lot about MS Dhoni’s future. Even Indian head coach Ravi Shastri told in a press conference about MS Dhoni’s comeback is totally based on his performance in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Many fans were eagerly waiting for the 13th edition of IPL as it was the right platform for the 38-year-old veteran player to prove his form and fitness.

The wicketkeeper-batsman was expected to get back in full swing after his nine-month-long sabbatical since the last year’s World Cup semi-final against the eventual runners-up New Zealand. Unexpectedly, the IPL 2020 has been postponed for an indefinite period due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis which has, in fact, delayed MS Dhoni’s much-awaited return to the cricket field.

“MSD is a seasoned and hardened professional. He knows what he needs to do to get ready physically and mentally. He was putting in a lot of hard work in the lead up to the IPL. I am sure it won’t take him too long to get to the level he needs to play well and contribute,” Michael Hussey told The Times Of India.

With IPL 2020 has postponed for an indefinite period, there is still no clarity as to when the sporting activities will resume. Recently, Sunil Gavaskar told that the live sports would take up to five months to resume while also adding that playing behind closed doors is the last resort.

Michael Hussey Reveals His ‘Best Of Enemies XI’ In Test Cricket

While most of the cricket events have been postponed in the coronavirus outbreak, the cricket families are revealing their best cricketers and best teams in various point of views. The former Australian cricketer Michael Hussey recently came up with his “Best of Enemies XI” in Test cricket, where he selected three top Indian batsmen.

Michael Hussey served for the Australia national cricket team from 2004 to 2012. He played 79 Tests, 185 ODIs and 38 T20Is where the left-handed batsman scored 6235 runs (average 51.52), 5442 runs (average 48.15) and 721 runs (average 37.94). For his incredible batting abilities, Hussey was known as the “Mr Cricket”.

Recently, during “The Unplayable Podcast”, Hussey picked up his “Best of Enemies XI” in Test cricket. In the opening batting role, he named the former Indian opener Virender Sehwag and former South African captain Graeme Smith.

Michael Hussey had three choices for the wicket-keeper batsman role

For the wicket-keeping role, Hussey had the choice between the former Sri Lankan cricketer Kumar Sangakkara and the former Indian World Cup-winning captain MS Dhoni. The former Australian cricketer also thought the name of the former South African captain AB de Villiers for the wicket-keeper batsman role. However, Hussey believes that Dhoni and De Villiers both had major impacts in the limited-overs cricket while Sangakkara had an immense impact in the Test cricket.

Hussey then chose three incredible pacers in his time. His first two choices were the South African duo Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel. Then, the former Australian middle-order batsman named the English pacer James Anderson. The former Sri Lankan off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan is the only spinner in this team.

Mike Hussey Opines The Similar Quality Between MS Dhoni And Ricky Ponting

Former Australian cricketer Mike Hussey has said that MS Dhoni and Ricky Ponting have similar qualities as a leader because of which they are the most successful captains of the world.

Dhoni and Ponting are successful captains and players. The former Indian captain has led India to lift three ICC Trophies–2007 T20 World Cup, 2011 World Cup and 2013 Champions trophy. On the other hand, Ponting has been lifted three-time the World Cup trophies while two-time being as a captain. Under Ponting’s captaincy, Australia also won two ICC Champions Trophies.

Hussey said that both Dhoni and Ponting didn’t get emotionally driven by the defeat. They have the abilities to handle the pressure and inspire the teammates, according to the former Australian cricketer.

“One of his great abilities is he will not take on defeat for too long. Yes, he will be disappointed like everyone, but he will get over quickly and look over to the next match and that is a great trait to have,” Hussey said in a videocast hosted by ESPNCricinfo.

“Ricky Ponting was similar too, whether he was going well or going poorly. A consistent character and not someone like a yo-yo, going up and down, riding emotions all the time. He would be level the whole time, a trait you notice in great players,” he added.

Well, Mike Hussey has played under both the captains. Ponting has been the captain of the Australian team. Whereas he has played with captain Dhoni for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) from 2008 to 2013. Dhoni was going to feature in IPL 2020 but because of the pandemic, the league has been postponed. He hasn’t played a match after the dishearting World Cup 2019 semi-final. So, the IPL 2020 will play a major part in Dhoni’s comeback in the national team and his participation in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020.

Michael Hussey Believes CSK Will Not Leave MS Dhoni Even After His Retirement

Though MS Dhoni is still ready to lead the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), he is moving towards the last phase of his cricket career. The former Australian cricketer Michael Hussey, who is a long time member of CSK, believes that the IPL team will always keep Dhoni involved even after his retirement.

The IPL 2020 was initially scheduled to run from 29th March to 24th May 2020. But the novel COVID-19 or coronavirus has forced to postpone this tournament, and there is no assurance on the future of the IPL 2020. This edition was more important because of MS Dhoni’s return to the cricket.

The CSK captain Dhoni last time played a cricket match during the semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 on 10th July 2019. While he made himself unavailable for the game since that tournament, he recently started practice seriously for the forthcoming IPL season. However, the coronavirus has delayed his return to the game. While Dhoni’s international cricket future is unsure yet, he is likely to play the next IPL edition too. Whatever Dhoni is moving to the last phase of his cricket career.

The CSK is known to continue their long time cricketers with the team even after they retire from the game. Stephen Fleming and Michael Hussey are the prominent examples in this list as Fleming is currently handling the Head Coach role of the team and Hussey is the batting coach.

Hussey believes that the Chennai franchise will keep Dhoni involved even after he retires from the game. While Dhoni’s retirement will begin a new era for CSK, Hussey feels that it will be more challenging for this team than the present situation.

Michael Hussey told Sanjay Manjrekar on ESPNCricinfo’s Videocast, “That’s a 60-million-dollar question, and I am equally intrigued. I believe the owners would like to keep Dhoni involved in some way or the other.

“However, whenever the change of guard happens, CSK might want to start all over again, build a brand, new team, and use their existing philosophy as they enter the next decade of IPL. It is definitely going to be more challenging in current times.”

MS Dhoni is the greatest finisher of all time: Michael Hussey

While Mr Cricket Hussey was known as one of the best finishers in the cricket world, he believes that Dhoni is the greatest finisher of all time in the cricket world. Hussey praised Dhoni for maintaining the high-level self-belief.

The former Aussie cricketer said, “Dhoni is the greatest finisher of all time that the cricketing world has ever produced.

“Dhoni can keep his cool and make the opposition captain blink first. Dhoni also has unbelievable power. He knows that when he needs to clear the ropes, he can do it. He has that kind of self-belief. Honestly, I didn’t have that kind of belief in myself.

“I tried not to let it reach 12 or 13 runs an over. And I learnt this from MS Dhoni. He is incredible.

“He believes that he who panics last wins the game. So Dhoni would keep his cool, and keep it longer because the pressure is on the bowler as well.”

Justin Langer Calls MS Dhoni A Master In Finisher Role

Australian Head Coach Justin Langer recently called that MS Dhoni was master in the finisher role like Michael Bevan, Michael Hussey etc. He believes that world cricket is looking for this kind of players.

A solid team has been built up with the presence of many different characters. In this system, every cricketer plays different but crucial roles. However, the finisher plays one of the most vital roles in this team. Without a solid finisher, a team can’t show their proper dominance on the field although they have enough strong batting and bowling units.

To become a dependable finisher, a player has to face many experiences. Like the other teams, the present Australian team is also trying to find out this kind of player who can take proper responsibility in the finisher role.

The former Aussie cricketer and present Head Coach Justin Langer recently claimed that the former Australian cricketers Michael Hussey and Michael Bevan and the former Indian World Cup-winning captain MS Dhoni were masters in the finishing role. He also praised England cricketer Jos Buttler for this role.

Langer said according to ICC, “We’ve been fortunate in the past with a Mike Hussey or a Michael Bevan who are masters at it. MS Dhoni is a master of it, Jos Buttler has been brilliant at it for England.

“What I’ve learned is everyone in the world is looking for it.”

Justin Langer’s boys will now face New Zealand in the ODI series

Recently, Australia lost the three-match ODI series against the hosts South Africa by the 3-0 margin. Now, they are preparing for the three-match home ODI series against New Zealand.

During the forthcoming home ODI series, while Australia will try to find out the finisher, Langer feels that it will be a good opportunity for the batsmen to show their actual class.

Langer claimed, “So it’s a role that’s there for someone to grab hold of. No one at this stage has absolutely secured it, have they? But there are good opportunities there for someone to do that.”

The three matches of the upcoming ODI series between Australia and New Zealand will be played on 13th March (at Sydney), 15th March (at Sydney) and 20th March (at Hobart).

There is no Age to Start Any Sport: Rohit Sharma

The 32-year-old Indian opening batsman Rohit Sharma believes that there is no age to make a mark in any sport. Talking about this, he cited an example of former Australian cricketer Michael Hussey‘s success despite late debut in international cricket.

While the Indian team is currently busy in the ongoing New Zealand tour, Rohit is missing the cricket due to a calf injury. During the last game of the five-match T20I series of this tour, Rohit suffered from a calf injury.

Later, he was ruled out from the ODI series, and now, he will miss the upcoming two-match Test series, starting on 21st February.

Recently, during a chat show, a host asked Rohit about the correct age to start a sport. In reply, Rohit claimed that there is no age barrier to start any sport, and he brought out the example of Michael Hussey to prove it.

Rohit said, “There is a very Australian cricketer Michael Hussey, he made is Australian [Test] debut when he was 30. He played for 6-7 years and he is called Mr Cricket. This is a good learning for all of us, there is no age to start any sport.”

Former Australian cricketer Hussey is fondly known as ‘Mr Cricket’ for his ability during his stint with Australia. Hussey made his international debut through the ODI cricket in 2004, at the age of 28-year-old.

After crossing the age of 30, he made his debut in the multi-day format.

In the international career, Hussey played 79 Tests, 185 ODIs and 38 T20Is after continuing the game till the age of 38. He was one of the most consistent batsmen for his team as his Test average was over 50 (51.52) and ODI average was just less than 50 (48.15).

Cristiano Ronaldo is a big example: Rohit Sharma

Rohit further stated the example of Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo‘s life to prove nothing can stop to achieve success if the belief is right.

Rohit added, “Ronaldo is a big example. He lost his father at an early age. He was brought up by his mother alone, it was not an easy household to be a part of. But look where he is now. You can’t stop believing.”

The present limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma achieved regular success in international cricket after he has been promoted as an opening batsman. In the same process, he has now started to achieve great success in Test cricket.
