“ 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 is scared last wins the game. So Dhoni would keep his cool, and keep it longer because the pressure is on the bowler as well.”, he quipped

CSK Would Ride High As Long As Dhoni Features

Mike opined that CSK would ride high as long as Dhoni features in their playing eleven. However, the situation can take a downturn if Dhoni decides to hang his boots. The said eventuality would need CSK to rejig the team structure and combination, albeit setting the team in motion with CSK’s trademark philosophy.

When inquired about the reasons behind CSK’s mesmerizing performance, Mr Cricket ascribed it to the team management’s astuteness. According to Hussey the team management has not meddled with internal affairs and has left it to the coach, Stephen Fleming, and the skipper, Dhoni. This created an ambiance of harmony within the team, who delivered on the field as a unit.

Hussey has also aligned the persona of Dhoni with the traits of so called pantheons of the game. Hussey opined that the unflappable and composed constitution of Dhoni’s mind levels him with other legends like Ricky Ponting.
