Mike Hussey- 733 runs in IPL 2013, CSK
Mike Hussey was one of the cornerstones of Chennai Super Kings’ success in the first few years of the Indian Premier.
Hussey, along with fellow opener Murali Vijay and Suresh Raina, formed a formidable top-3 that gave consistent starts paving way for the shenanigans of power-hitters like Dwayne Bravo and MS Dhoni to take over at the death.
Hussey had his finest hour in IPL cricket during the 2013 season where he became the then joint-highest run-scorer in a single edition of the tournament’s history.
While CSK finished as the second-best team in the tournament courtesy a crushing defeat at the hands of Mumbai Indians in the finals, the former Australian cricketer ended up at the numero-uno spot, scoring a colossal 733 runs in 17 innings at an average of 52.35 and a strike-rate of 129.50, which also included six half-centuries.
