Hussey thanks Dhoni but says not ready for India coach job

Sydney, Jan 2: Captain MS Dhoni might have suggested former Australian batsman Michael Hussey's name for India's head coach job but the left-hander has said he is not ready yet.

According to a media report, Dhoni, who retired from Test cricket on December 30, had told BCCI that they should consider appointing Hussey as next coach once Duncan Fletcher's tenure ends.

However, Hussey, who is currently captaining Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash League (BBL) Twenty20 tournament said thanked Dhoni for suggesting his name but said he was not ready.

"I'm not sure if I'm really ready for that sort of challenge. Thanks, M.S. (Dhoni), if it's true . . . but, I'm still playing!," Hussey was quoted as saying by "Sydney Morning Herald".

Hussey and Dhoni have played together for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Known as "Mr. Cricket", Hussey has retired from international stage but still plays T20s.
