Chennai Super Kings batting coach Michael Hussey is mighty impressed with Moeen Ali’s batting talent and saying he only realised his calibre when the England all-rounder joined the CSK squad last year.
While speaking about Moeen Ali’s batting on Cricket Live on Star Sports, Mike Hussey said: “Moeen Ali, honestly, is an unbelievable player. I only watched him closely for the first time when he joined the CSK squad in the last season. So, I didn’t realise how good a player he actually is. He’s a beautiful batsman, a graceful player. Just the way he times the cricket ball is fantastic.”
When asked why didn’t CSK players panic despite facing defeats in the opening games, Mike Hussey said: “It’s been one of the traits of CSK over the years. Obviously, MS Dhoni who’s captained the team for a long time and Stephen Fleming, the coach, are very calm and collected characters all the time. The first couple of games didn’t go as per the plans but we are certainly not panicking as these are early stages.”
CSK will take on PBKS on April 3 in the IPL, 2022.
