New Delhi: Mahendra Singh Dhoni's presence in the middle order makes it easier for him to nudge around singles and play his natural game, feels Aussie veteran Michael Hussey.

"Obviously, when you have someone like MS (Dhoni), you tend to bat more freely. You can just take your singles and rotate the strike. It's really an enjoyable experience batting with guys like MS and Suresh (Raina) who are boundary hitters," Hussey, who anchored the innings with an unbeaten 65, told reporters at the post-match press conference.

"Yesterday, after assessing the pitch, I gave Fleming a feedback during Time-Out that 150 will be a good score. But with hitting power of MS, you can always back yourself for those extra 20 runs," Hussey revealed.
