Following a dismal start to the Indian Premier League season this year, Australian veteran and Mumbai Indians latest recruit Michael Hussey seems to have lost his place in the top-order. Despite scoring 30 runs in the four out of five matches Hussey has played for Mumbai so far, former India skipper and current commentator Ravi Shastri believes Mumbai need to keep their faith in the left-handed opener.
Talking about the leading run-scorer of IPL 2013, Shastri wrote in his column for Times of India, "I wouldn't let go of Michael Hussey. There is too much class and pride in that frame. He is rusty, but he is still your best bet."
He went on to make a bold statment, saying, "Mumbai's hopes will float and sink with Michael Hussey. The fate of the two are linked together."
