Recently-retired Australian batsman, Michael Hussey is enjoying his participation in the Indian Premier League (IP). The lucrative league is due to get started on April 3rd, and the Aussie batting maestro is all set to continue his majestic work
for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
Hussey has said that he loves to play for the Super Kings, and wants to serve this IPL outfit for another two to three years. In an exclusive chat with The Hindu, the classy left-hander stated:
“I absolutely love it in Chennai. I want to be a part of Chennai Super Kings as a player or in whatever role for the next two or three years at least."
Hussey left everybody stunned by announcing his sudden retirement from the international cricket. The left-handed batsman was in superb form, when he decided to call it a day.
And even the team management was surprised to see him leaving the field. Mickey Arthur, the Aussie coach, has already uttered that Hussey was very much part of Australia’s plans for the years.
His and Ricky Ponting’s absence hurt the side very badly on the recent tour to India, where the Kangaroos faced a shameful 4-0 loss. Since the side is badly missing Hussey, there were speculations that he may return to the side for the upcoming Ashes series.
But Hussey has no plans of this nature. He cleared the air by saying that the decision of saying good bye to international cricket is final, and he does not want to come back to the national setup.
"When the ball turns and you are new to the conditions in India, you do not know which delivery has your name on it. That is why you need to kick on after starts. I must say I was disappointed by some of the shot selection by the Aussie batsmen. It was hard
for me to watch the Australian team beaten in this fashion," he said of the 4-0 drubbing.
He, meanwhile, was all praise for Michael Clarke, but admitted that it would be very difficult for the cricketer administration to bring someone great like Ponting.
