Michael Hussey Recalls MS Dhoni: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) recently shared a video, in which two former players of the team were seen sharing some old stories. In this video named ‘Super Reunion’, there was a long conversation between former Australia and CSK cricketers Michael Hussey and Matthew Hayden. There was laughter and jokes in this conversation, as well as some old special moments were also remembered. Mike Hussey shared one such moment. This moment is related to MS Dhoni.
In fact, when the 2013 spot-fixing case came to light, CSK was suspended from the IPL in 2016 and 2017. In this era, Dhoni represented Rising Pune Supergiants. After this, when CSK returned in IPL in 2018, Dhoni gave a speech for his team. Michael Hussey shared an anecdote related to this speech.
‘Dhoni started crying while giving the speech at the beginning of the season’
Michael Hussey says, ‘We were out of IPL for two years. We came back and I remember MS Dhoni giving a speech at the beginning of the season. He was actually crying during that time. Tears were coming out of his eyes. I remember at that time I was thinking that something special is going to happen this time. That was a special season. Thinking about what happened that year, your hair starts to rise. It seems that whatever happened that year was bound to happen in the IPL. MS Dhoni had performed brilliantly throughout that season. It was a very special time.’
Let us tell you that in 2018, Chennai had won the IPL trophy. In that season, Chennai entered the playoffs by winning 9 out of 14 matches of the league stage. In the playoffs, Chennai defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad to make it to the final. Even in the final match, Chennai was once again against Hyderabad. In this match, Chennai achieved the target of 179 runs by losing just 2 wickets and won the IPL trophy.
