‘No Chance’ I’ll Share Dhoni’s Secrets With Australian Camp, Says Hussey

Written by Vishwas Gupta

Michael Hussey feels that Mahendra Singh Dhoni does not have “too many weaknesses” but even if he did, the Chennai Super Kings batting coach wouldn’t share them with in-form Australia ahead of their World Cup clash against India on Sunday.

Hussey has played alongside Dhoni at CSK and as coach, watched him from close quarters in the franchise.

“No chance. There aren’t too many weaknesses there anyway,” the former Australia batsman let out a chuckle as he spoke to PTI in an exclusive interview.

However, Hussey is confident that Australia will have their plans in place for the former India captain.

“All the teams do very thorough analysis on all the players so I am sure that they will have their plans for MSD and all the Indian players.”

Asked what makes Dhoni tick when he is just a month short of 38, Hussey said the it’s his awareness of his strengths.

“He is a great competitor and keeps his composure better than anyone especially under pressure. He is a very smart player, who is calculating. He knows his strengths and always sticks to them,” said the member of the 2007 World Cup-winning Australian team.
