    Hussey wanted to leave CLT20 early - Cricket Aust told him he had to stay

    Aus v Ind 2010: Michael Hussey wanted to leave CLT20 early | Cricket News | India v Australia | Cricinfo.com

    Obviously Bollinger's injury, and now Hussey's comments, bring this issue to the fore again.

    If WA were in the final instead of Chennai, I imagine Hussey wouldn't have played, and would have been with the touring party.

    For mine, you know your obligations before signing the contract with the Chennai Super Kings. If you want to be paid a ridiculous amount of money for not that much work, you're going to have to make sacrifices from time to time.

    It obviously wasn't ideal for Australia (or India for that matter with Dhoni and Raina arriving late), but as far as I'm concerned, you can't have your cake and eat it too.

    Mitch Johnson is choosing to not sign with any IPL teams, and hence he's available to train and tour whenever he wants. But he's not being paid millions.

    Thank you Dhoni and CSK!

    Finally something good emerges out of the IPL.

    IPL will get all the blame as usual, but people need to keep in mind that CA is a co-founder of the CLT20, and it is in their best interests that the best players play as many games as possible to make the tournament a financial success.

    Well like it was said, if Dhoni and Raina can come late and be able to participate without much fuss then Hussey shouldn't be really making a big deal out of it...but there is a case for home advantage for them.
    BE AFRIDI!
    Be VERY AFRIDI!!

    Dhoni was bad in this Test. Really bad. Hope he sorts it out pretty quickly.

    Yeah, and I think he knows it. His body language in the moments after India won the Test was very muted and not as demonstrative as the occasion would have demanded.

    Not that something like that ever held Ganguly back.

    He kept well though...that's tough in itself.

    He generally reacts like that I think. Remember his reactions after the T20 WC final?

    Not that you'd notice. Shelled a very catchable chance off Ojha when Watson was on 30-odd in the first innings.

    Captained, batted and ran like a drain too.

    Think Hussey should HTFU myself. If you're gonna willingingly suck Satan's **** it's a little late to moan you don't like the taste.

    He certainly didn't keep well. Dropped two costly catches and let plenty of byes through to the spinners, as far as I can recollect.

    EDIT : What Brumby said.

    Ye basically. As i always say blame the broken ICC for this. It really is ridiculous that international players should have so little recovery time between series.

    Both the IPL & Champions League cannot exist - one has to go.

    Well Hussey possibly wouldn't have known his sacrifices when signing his contract as originally this indian v australia series didn't have any tests planned and the champions league dates wouldn't have been released when he signed his contract however many seasons ago or last year.
