Hussey scored 1977 runs in 58 IPL innings at 38.76 with the help of 15 half-centuries and one hundred.

Conway said it was special for him to be drawn in the similar ranks of the CSK batting coach.

“I have heard that a few times now, which is quite good. To be compared to one of the greats, Mike Hussey, is pretty special. It feels good to be possibly in that bracket,” Conway said in the post-match conference.

“He has got so much knowledge, so much experience, not only in the IPL but throughout the world. It’s very important for me as a player to continue talking to him and learning from him and keep working hard,” he added. 

CSK thrashed Capitals by 91 runs to keep their IPL 2022 campaign alive. The MS Dhoni-led side will face rivals Mumbai Indians on May 12 at the Wankhede stadium.
