31.4

Shahid Afridi to Hussey, 1 run, "easy easy" is the call as Hussey cuts calmly to deep cover

32.1

Mohammad Hafeez to Hussey, 1 run, round the wicket, and tucked off the hip

32.5

Mohammad Hafeez to Hussey, no run, short and leg-sided. Hussey's ambitious smear doesn't come off as Akmal rushes round to field a deflection

32.6

Mohammad Hafeez to Hussey, 1 run, a soft-handed dab to cover. One more to the total

Australia 130/4   MEK Hussey 6* (9b)

35.1

Abdur Rehman to Hussey, 1 run, pushed to midwicket, where Misbah again flings himself as if he's in the first flush of youth

35.4

Abdur Rehman to Hussey, 1 run, Hussey uses his feet, and eludes the diving Misbah at short midwicket

35.6

Abdur Rehman to Hussey, no run, good aggression from the Pakistanis, a quick pick-up at short midwicket and a sharp shy to keep the non-striker honest

Australia 140/5   MEK Hussey 10* (16b)
36.4

Abdul Razzaq to Hussey, no run, beaten! That cut straight through Hussey, who was lucky not to inside-edge onto his own stumps

36.5

Abdul Razzaq to Hussey, no run, drilled hard, more of a square drive than a cut, but point pouched it in an instant. Pakistan are so alert today!

36.6

Abdul Razzaq to Hussey, 1 run, bashed down to long-on, another single to end another tight over

Australia 142/5   MEK Hussey 11* (19b)
37.1

Abdur Rehman to Hussey, 1 run, chiselled from outside off to midwicket. Another single

37.3

Abdur Rehman to Hussey, no run, reverse sweep, doesn't connect

37.4

Abdur Rehman to Hussey, OUT, that's as soft as a baby possum. Hussey hardly got to the pitch of that one, and lobbed a simple chance to short midwicket. The two-paced wicket might take some of the blame, but that was poor from such an experienced campaigner

MEK Hussey c Misbah-ul-Haq b Abdur Rehman 12 (29m 22b 0x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Australia 144/6   MEK Hussey 12 (22b)
