Raipur: Knocked out of the Champions League T20 after losing to Northern Knights in the qualifying round, Mumbai Indians' ace batsman Michael Hussey said some tight bowling by pacers Trent Boult and Tim Southee had led to his team's downfall.
"The Northern Knights pace attack operated very well. Southee and Boult bowled very well at the start and we could not get going. They had us under pressure and the new guys coming in also found it difficult. Scott Styris reaped the rewards but I think the credit goes to the two pace bowlers for the initial set up," said Hussey at the post match press conference after losing by six wickets last night here at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium.

Hussey also admitted that the New Zealand outfit was brilliant in the field.
