Randiv to Haddin, SIX, lovely straight drive. Beautiful swing of the arms after taking half a step down the track. Right over the bowler's head

Australia 193/5   BJ Haddin 19* (35b 2x4 1x6)   S Randiv 10.1-1-28-0

Randiv to Hussey, SIX, another top shot from Hussey. Charges at Randiv, goes inside out over mid-off for the second six of the series. He was so close to the pitch of the ball the turn couldn't have bothered him

Australia 204/5   MEK Hussey 57* (122b 5x4 1x6)   S Randiv 11.1-1-39-0

Randiv to Hussey, SIX, Has Welegedara pulled off a special catch? No he hasn't! This is a six! Hussey comes down the ground, chips this inside out towards long-off, Welegedara back-pedals and takes a good catch, only for his heel to step on the skirting. He claims the catch, though, but replays prove him wrong. Peter Siddle kept gesturing, asking them to stay and wait for the replays

Australia 258/9   MEK Hussey 82* (161b 6x4 2x6)   S Randiv 19.1-2-68-2

Randiv to Hussey, SIX, Hussey's gem continues! Hits a six off the fourth ball of this over. Gives him the charge again, makes room, and lofts over long-on. Enters the 90s. Ponting applauds from the balcony

Australia 266/9   MEK Hussey 90* (172b 6x4 3x6)   S Randiv 20.4-2-75-2
