Chennai Super Kings’ batting coach Mike Hussey returned to Australia on Monday after recovering from COVID-19, the Indian Premier League (IPL) team said.

Australia lifted a two-week ban on its citizens returning from COVID-ravaged India last week.”Back in super high spirits! Recovered and returned home safe!” Chennai tweeted alongside a photo of Hussey and bowling coach Lakshmipathy Balaji, who has also recovered from the virus.
