Sydney: Retired Michael Hussey has claimed he would have struggled to mount a Chennai salvage mission against world class Indian spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh and Ravindra Jadeja despite a penchant to wriggle Australia from desperate predicaments.
Hussey said he doesn`t miss playing cricket for Australia anymore, adding his decision to retire was right, and it would be silly to say that he could have rescued the visitors in the Chennai Test, News.com.au reports. Hussey, who piled 6235 Test runs at 51.52, added looking at that pitch (Chennai) he didn`t wanted to be the one out there trying to help Australia in that Test, adding it looked particularly tough.
Hussey further said it is silly to say that he would have made a difference, adding there were some pretty tough dismissals, the ball that Phil Hughes got in the second innings and Shane Watson were pretty much unplayable, there`s not much you can do about it sometimes.
