A late entrant into the Australian team, Michael Hussey has made a name for himself in a significantly less amount of time. At 38, Hussey is hardly a spring chicken, but the ever-smiling left-handed batsman from Australia never lets age dictate his performance. Hussey started his international career with a real bang, reaching statistical stratosphere in both Tests and ODIs. ‘Mr. Cricket’, as he is affectionately called, was a real honest worker for CSK since IPL 2008. In IPL 2014, this legendary Australian batsman suited up for Mumbai Indians. Hussey became the second batsman to score a century in IPL when he made 116 against Kings XI Punjab in 2008. He was pivotal in CSK winning the IPL and CLT20 in 2010. Hussey’s value to his team isn’t limited to his cricketing skills. With his work ethics and humility he has established himself as a role model for all the younger players around him. In the 2015 Player Auction, CSK bought the Australian batsman back.
