Super Kings' win bad for Australia

3:23 pm on 25 September 2010

The Australian cricketers have been handed the worst possible lead-in to their Test series against India by Chennai's semi-final victory over Bangalore at the Twenty20 Champions League.

Senior batsman Mike Hussey and left-arm quick Doug Bollinger will now be seconded to Chennai until the end of the final on Monday, and will not reach India until late the next day, leaving just three days until they are pitched into a Test in entirely foreign conditions.
