9.1

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, down the leg side but it isn't a million miles away from Hussey's gloves as it bounces through to Prior

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, good ball, jags back off a good length and strikes Hussey high on the back leg as he leaves the ball knowing it will bounce

9.3

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, down the leg side again, there's a noise and a strangled shout from England but the bat wasn't anywhere near it

9.4

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, he's just lost his line a little to the left hander as this scoots down the leg side again

Finn to Hussey, no run, pushed wide outside off, Finn appears to have a few issues with the footholes

12.4

Finn to Hussey, no run, goes full on the stumps this time and worked down to mid-on

Finn to Hussey, FOUR, well placed again! Thought not particularly controlled. Hussey gets a thick edge into the ground and between gully and the slips cordon, I'm not convinced that was deliberate, but he gets four runs for it

20.4

Finn to Hussey, no run, that is a sharp, rising ball! Gee, it didn't even seem that short, but it's on the rise at head height as it goes past Hussey, who tried to hook and didn't connect. It was outside off, had that been on target it would have been interesting

20.5

Finn to Hussey, no run, Hussey leaves this one alone

20.6

Finn to Hussey, no run, no shot once again, Finn hasn't quite got the line right to Hussey, although he is drying up the runs

24.1

Collingwood to Hussey, no run, good ball swinging in to Hussey, who clips it to leg

24.2

Collingwood to Hussey, 2 runs, curving onto the pads again, Hussey does well to work it through square and he does it gently enough to allow him to get back for two, to the man in the deep

24.3
