1.5

1.6

Vettori to Hussey, 1 leg bye, That is close, really close. Full, flat, fast, Hussey seems to have been beaten as he turns the bat face on it. Tony Hill, though, shakes his head right away. That had to be close. Replays suggest it pitched inches outside leg

Khan to Hussey, FOUR, smashed it, absolutely smashed it, dancing down the track and lofting him over mid-on, as if Zaheer was a spinner

4.2

van der Wath to Hussey, 1 run, Bangalore are fielding poorly here! Kaif this time. One of the better fielders in domestic cricket. Hussey looks to loft over mid-off, mishits, Kaif runs back, gets under it, still running back, and lets it through his hands

5.1

Dilshan to Hussey, 1 run, flat, shortish delivery on off, Hussey bottom-edges a pull

Dilshan to Hussey, FOUR, fuller, on middle and leg, and Hussey sweeps this this time, over square leg. Runs have come a bit too easy in the last two overs

14.1

Vettori to Hussey, 1 bye, AB has missed a stumping here? Hussey makes room and comes down, Vettori fires it in. AB is possibly blind-sighted as he can't even collect the ball. Concedes a bye too

14.3

Vettori to Hussey, 1 leg bye, looks to sweep from outside leg, misses, and gets a leg-bye. To short third man!

14.5

Vettori to Hussey, SIX, slog-sweep! Hussey rearranges Vettori's figures a bit. It seems Hussey had made up his mind that this was going no matter where it landed. Just cleared the front leg, and was happy to see the length ball. Over midwicket

14.6

Vettori to Hussey, FOUR, that's not a good parting shot from Vettori. Full, flat, outside leg, and Hussey helps it along its way over short fine leg

15.2

Kohli to Hussey, 1 run, makes room and pushes a full delivery down to long-off

15.4

Kohli to Hussey, FOUR, nice shot, but the fielding is not so nice. Makes room and cuts this over extra cover where Asad Pathan lets it through his legs. Kohli is not pleased. Bangalore have been poor in the field, except for Kohli

17.2

van der Wath to Hussey, 3 runs, another drop! Bangalore won't be able to catch a cold at North Pole. Slower ball from van der Wath, and Hussey skies it towards sweeper-cover where Asad Patahan - yes, you guessed it - misjudges, doesn't get into position, and lets it through his butter fingers

17.4

van der Wath to Hussey, 2 runs, Dilshan provides Bangalore fielders a hint of redemption. Hussey nicely squeezes this yorker fine of third man but a diving Dilshan saves two runs

17.5
