Chennai: Micthell Johnson was out for seven months due to a toe fracture and now attributes his successful comeback into the international arena to none other than the legendary Dennis Lillee, who has worked with him once he was done with his rehabilitation.

"Obviously, it's been an amazing experience working with Lillee. I had fair bit of time out of the game - seven months out of the game- and was able to work with him again at the MRF Pace academy as well as back home in our conditions," the 31-year-old left-arm quick said at the Open media session today.

"Lillee knows my game really well. I trust him very much. He has been around for me throughout my whole career. It's always nice to hear good things from him. Also nice to go out there and perform and put in what he has asked me to do," he said.
