Michael Hussey has been attached to Chennai Super Kings for a long time. The Australian Batsman has been one of the protagonists when they won the IPL title in 2010 and 2011. He was back in the city for his commentary in TNPL when he voiced his thoughts on Virat Kohli and retirement plans of MS Dhoni and upcoming India vs Australia ODI series.
On Kohli’s Captaincy challenges against Australia, England, and South Africa:
MS deserves to go out on his own terms. If he believes he can play the next World Cup, who is to doubt him? He is a very modest and honest man. If he thinks he cannot contribute to India’s cause in the World Cup, I don’t think he will be there. At 36, he is still one of the fittest players. He knows his game and he looks after his body well. So he knows when to call it quits.
On India vs Australia Series next month:
India has been a frontier where we haven’t done well. I know the current team is highly motivated to win a series in India. Obviously, the Ashes and World Cups are prestigious, but winning in India is a huge goal for us. The hardest thing for Australians is to adapt to slow Indian pitches. But the current players have had great exposure to Indian conditions through IPL. We played well in the last Test series in India. So this will be a great chance to create an upset.
