Hussey: Have put Dhoni incident behind us

In a rare instance, MS Dhoni, who was not even meant to be on the field of play, lost his cool and rushed out of the dug-out to challenge umpire Ulhas Gandhe after he flip-flopped on a no ball.

Michael Hussey believes Chennai Super Kings has put the M.S. Dhoni incident behind.

He said here on Saturday, “To be honest, we have pretty much moved on. Yeah, it’s all happened and it’s been dealt with pretty much right after the game.”

The CSK batting coach added, “And the game is finished and that’s the thing about the IPL. You got to move on to the next match very quickly. There’s no point in us dwelling on it. Worrying about and stressing about it.”

Hussey said, “It’s like having a loss. And again, you move on to the next match as quickly as you possibly can. So to be honest, we haven’t spoken about it.”

Another Aussie Simon Katich of the Kolkata Knight Riders, when asked about the Dhoni episode in Jaipur, said, “I don’t want to get into trouble. I will give a stock standard answer. It’s a tough job. Obviously there was a contentious one and unfortunately, it didn’t go away.”

The KKR assistant coach was, however, all praise for Dhoni’s captaincy. “He seems to pull the right strings at the right time, is very clever. In their last game against Rajasthan, he did not play his in-form bowler Harbhajan Singh because RR had five right-handers. He brought in Santner who did a good job for them.”
