11.1

Morkel to DJ Hussey, 1 run, steered towards third man for a single, over to Warner

11.4

11.6

Morkel to DJ Hussey, 1 run, Morkel follows Hussey with a yorker as the batsman tries to make room, he nearly falls over as he hits behind square, they run one but Warner wants one more, Hussey sends him back and he has to dive full length to make it

Australia 119/2   DJ Hussey 6* (6b)

12.1

Botha to DJ Hussey, no run, Hussey tries to play the ball off his pads but doesn't make contact

Botha to DJ Hussey, SIX, smashed! Hussey makes room by moving towards leg, waits for a short ball from Botha and absolutely hammered the ball over the straight boundary, he freed his arms and hit that with immense power

12.3

Botha to DJ Hussey, 1 run, full toss, played through midwicket for a single

12.5

Botha to DJ Hussey, FOUR, is that maximum? No it isn't but it so nearly was. Hussey pulls a full toss high towards deep midwicket, de Villiers is on the boundary and he can't move back quickly enough, the ball bounces just inside the boundary and goes over

12.6

Botha to DJ Hussey, 2 runs, Hussey cuts a very short ball through point and wants the second, he has to hurry but beats the throw, he's in just before Boucher breaks the stumps

13.4

Ntini to DJ Hussey, OUT, caught! Hussey makes room by moving towards leg and eventually has to reach out for the ball outside off stump, he hits it with the bottom of the bat and the ball lobs towards de Villiers at cover, that's a pretty easy catch to take

Australia 140/3   DJ Hussey 19 (12b 1x4 1x6)
