His name is Mr Cricket. And what Michael Hussey means to Chennai Super Kings is phenomenal.

The senior opener has said his side would look to keep the winning momentum going after sailing through the semifinals of the Champions League Twenty20 with a clinical eight-wicket win over Brisbane Heat.

"I am happy that we are in the semifinal and will keep up

the momentum," Hussey said at his post-match press conference at the JSCA stadium in Ranchi on Saturday night.

Hussey said the team should get better with each passing game as anything can happen in a short format like T20.

"Anything can happen in T20. Any player can come in and have a great play and take the game away from (us). So, we have to keep working on our game. We can get better, there is no question about that," said Hussey, who scored 57 not out in his team's triumph against Brisbane Heat.

Hussey was all praise for spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja for scripting CSK's easy win against Brisbane Heat.

"The wicket had a bit of spin and R Ashwin bowled well in his four overs with Ravindra Jadeja backing him up well. Both were good. Suresh Raina also chipped in with a wicket," he said.
