27 March 2009 - night match (20-over match)

Morkel to Warner, SIX, change of pace but Warner picked the slower one, landed full on middle, he took a step forward, got under it nicely and lofted it cleanly over the long-on boundary

Australia 40/2   DA Warner 27* (17b 3x4 1x6)   JA Morkel 1.5-0-16-1

Peterson to DJ Hussey, SIX, welcome runs, full outside off, Hussey makes room and smashes that over the extra-cover boundary, fiercely struck, a flat six that

Australia 57/2   DJ Hussey 17* (12b 1x4 1x6)   RJ Peterson 0.3-0-10-0

Botha to DJ Hussey, SIX, that's disappeared, timely hit, flighted on the off stump, much slower through the air, Hussey's eyes light up, he gets under it and dismisses it over the long-on boundary

Australia 70/2   DJ Hussey 25* (15b 1x4 2x6)   J Botha 2-0-18-0

Parnell to DJ Hussey, SIX, gets hold of it this time, bowled round the wicket, full outside off, reaches for it and creams it over the extra-cover boundary, went about 10-15 rows into the crowd

Australia 102/5   DJ Hussey 47* (29b 2x4 3x6)   WD Parnell 2.5-0-21-1

Peterson to DJ Hussey, SIX, slogged away and it's over the ropes, full and straight on the off stump, bowled quick, heaves it over the deep midwicket boundary, reaches his 50 in style

Australia 109/5   DJ Hussey 54* (31b 2x4 4x6)   RJ Peterson 3.1-0-23-2

Peterson to White, SIX, attempts something similar this time but it's full and meaty on middle, White gets hold of this, was waiting for it for a long time and finally connects it well enough to clear deep midwicket, a typical limited-overs slog that

Australia 116/5   CL White 16* (19b 1x6)   RJ Peterson 3.5-0-30-2

Morkel to DJ Hussey, SIX, wow, that was something! Full on middle, length ball, so he pays for bowling that wide, Hussey gets stuck into that one, lofts it high and AB de Villiers at long on takes it over his head but trips over the boundary ropes, took forever to come down but poor ball by Albie. An excellent catch there, took it with one hand, but what a waste in the end

Australia 127/6   DJ Hussey 63* (35b 2x4 5x6)   JA Morkel 4-0-36-1

Steyn to DJ Hussey, SIX, what a knock! Picked the slower one there, ended up landing full on the off stump, waited for it and smashed it away over the long-on boundary, goes miles into the crowd and Australia have posted a competitive score here

Australia 165/7   DJ Hussey 87* (43b 5x4 6x6)   DW Steyn 3.5-0-43-0
