Durban: Australian batsman Michael Hussey has returned home from the Champions League Twenty20 here due to "personal reasons" after his team was ousted from semifinal contention.

"Australian batsman Mike Hussey exited the Champions League Twenty20 over the weekend to return home to Perth for family reasons," media reports stated.

"A Chennai representative confirmed the 37-year-old West Australian had already left the tournament because of 'personal reasons'."

Chennai along with two other Indian Premier League franchises - Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians – have crashed out of the event.

Delhi Daredevils are the only IPL franchise still in contention for going ahead.
