How will CSK function when Dhoni quits? Hussey explains

Wednesday, April 15, 2020 • Tamil Sport News Comments

The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League was scheduled to begin on March 29 with the Chennai Super Kings team led by MS Dhoni, but the coronavirus pandemic that has brought the world to a standstill has caused the suspension of the tournament for an indefinite period.

Meanwhile, former Australian batsman and CSK player Michael Hussey explained how the team is likely to move forward when Dhoni decides to retire from all forms of cricket. Hussey reportedly stated, "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."

Talking about Dhoni's ability to finish every game seamlessly, Hussey added, "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."
