Sydney, Mar 2: Former Australia cricketer Michael Hussey has said that even he would have struggled against the Indian spinners on the Chennai track which assisted them from Day 1 of the first Test.

The retired cricketer defended the team's dismal show and added that if he was playing against the Indian spinners, he would have also struggled since they exploited the conditions very well.

I would've also struggled, says Hussey

R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Harbhajan Singh claimed all the 20 wickets in the first Test as Ashwin got the lion's share, having claimed 12 wickets while Jadeja and Harbhajan managed to get 5 and 3 wickets respectively.

Hussey while talking to news.com.au said even if he had played the first Test, he couldn't have rescued the visitors and also added that he had taken the right decision to retire from Tests.

He also added that he is not missing playing cricket for Australia, stressing on his decision to retire was a right move.

"I don't miss the stress. No, looking at that pitch I didn't want to be the one out there trying to help Australia in that Test. It looked particularly tough," modest Hussey, who piled 6235 Test runs at 51.52 was quoted as saying by News.com.au

"It is silly to say that I would have made a difference. There were some pretty tough dismissals, the ball that Phil Hughes got in the second innings and Shane Watson were pretty much unplayable, there's not much you can do about it sometimes," Hussey was quoted as saying.
