Chennai Super Kings (CSK) opening batter Devon Conway credited skipper MS Dhoni and said his advice on handling spinners helped him score his third straight half-century in IPL.

Conway smashed 87 runs against Delhi Capitals on Sunday, followed by scores of 85 not out and 56.

"I've got to give credit to MS tonight. In the last game I swept quite a lot and unfortunately got out playing the sweep,”

"Dhoni said to me, 'I think the guys are going to try to bowl fuller to you tonight. So maybe come out and try to hit them straight,”

"So he sort of gave me the guidelines to try to execute that. That's what I tried to do."

Another CSK stalwart who has been helping Conway is assistant coach and former Australia batter Mike Hussey with whom the Kiwi chats before matches.

“I think I’ve heard that a few times now, which is quite good. To get compared to one of the greats, Mike Hussey... it’s pretty special to be possibly in that bracket," Conway said at the post-match conference on people comparing him with Hussey.
