The former Aussie batsman, who has previously batted for CSK, will make a return to the franchise in a different role. Ahead of the cash-rich league’s 2018 edition, Hussey said,
"I am really excited about returning to the Chennai Super Kings in a coaching capacity and working with the players to help them get the best out of themselves and also help to bring success to this great franchise."
Hussey was awarded the Orange cap for most runs in 2013 season. The ‘Mr. Cricket’ reflected on his past performances and further added,
"I have so many great memories as a player and have made many wonderful friends in Chennai and now I am excited about giving back to the franchise in trying to help the next generation of CSK players. It is exciting to have CSK back in the competition and I am sure the fans are very happy to have their team back on the field."
