The Ashes - 4th Test

Australia v England

England won by an innings and 157 runs

Overs 0-50

14.3

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, solid defence from Hussey first up

14.4

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, and he follows that up with a judicious leave, stepping across to off stump and letting this one past

14.5

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, that's well-judged once again, Hussey leaving on length this time. The ball pitched and seamed back in to him, but was short enough to be safely left alone

14.6

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, emotive appeal from Tremlett as he goes fuller and straighter and Hussey is rapped on the back pad. And Strauss asks for a review ... but that's going over the top. It him him well above the knee-roll. And England have used up all their reviews for this innings

Australia 37/3   MEK Hussey 0* (4b)

15.3

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, full on off stump, Hussey leans forward into a solid defence

15.4

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, half an appeal from Bresnan as ball ricochets off pad once again ... but Aleem Dar says no, and England have no reviews. Probably going down, by the looks of the replay. Late swing in to the left-hander there

15.5

Bresnan to Hussey, 1 run, neatly tucked down to fine leg

Australia 39/3   MEK Hussey 1* (7b)

16.1

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, full and aimed right at off stump, Hussey punches defensively to cover

16.2

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, well-left. Hussey's leaving was a feature of his innings at Perth - even catching Geoffrey Boycott's eye - and he's shown good judgement so far today

16.3

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, slanted even wider across the batsman, no need to play at that

16.4

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, again Tremlett pushes one across him, just short of a good length. Left again. Is Hussey being set up for the one that comes back into the pads?

16.5

Tremlett to Hussey, FOUR, it appears not! Tremlett dishes up a gift on off stump, and Hussey drives a long half-volley to the extra cover boundary. He looks in good touch

16.6

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, and another watchful leave to end the over

Australia 43/3   MEK Hussey 5* (13b 1x4)

17.3

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, yet another harmless delivery is easily left by Hussey. England need to get him playing early on

17.4

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, that's better, on a length and straight and Hussey is drawn into a hurried defence

17.5

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, fuller still, but nice and straight once more and Hussey is slightly squared up as he defends to off

17.6

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, landing short of a length on off and going further off the seam, Hussey is quite happy to leave

Australia 46/3   MEK Hussey 5* (17b 1x4)

18.3

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, Tremlett pulls the length back to get the ball popping up towards Hussey's ribs, but the batsman rides the bounce to play the ball straight down on the leg side

18.4

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, Tremlett errs slightly in line, and Hussey shoulders arms to one outside off

18.5

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, Tremlett attacks the stumps and immediately appears a far more dangerous prospect ... ball thumps into pad as Hussey lunges forward, but there's a massive inside edge involved

18.6

Tremlett to Hussey, 2 runs, another testing delivery, curving back in to the pads through the air and nudged into the leg side at midwicket

Australia 49/3   MEK Hussey 7* (21b 1x4)

20.1

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, yet another studied leave from Hussey, he could do this all day

20.2

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, again Tremlett pushes this just too far from off to get Hussey playing. The ball does swing back in through the air, but only really once it has passed him

20.3

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, left alone once more, this one really went off the seam back in to Hussey. Left on length, as that shot over middle and off

20.4

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, Tremlett has got to pitch it up here, fourth leave in four for Hussey

20.5

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, and pitch it up he does. Hussey is caught at the crease as he defends, but the ball pings off a defensive blade

20.6

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, rare play and a miss from Hussey! First error in judgement he's made today. He might have left this as well, but just thrust the bat out at it with his weight back

Australia 53/3   MEK Hussey 7* (27b 1x4)

22.1

Swann to Hussey, no run, darting this one in at off stump to start, and Hussey leans forward to defend right under the nose

22.2

Swann to Hussey, no run, pitching slightly wider of off and kicked away by Hussey. That seemed to grip just a touch, definitely something there

22.3

Swann to Hussey, no run, speared in much quicker through the air, and rushing on with the arm. Defended by Hussey

22.4

Swann to Hussey, no run, this time the batsman uses his feet, getting nicely to the pitch and whipping to midwicket ... but straight to the fielder, who immediately fires in a return to have Hussey hurrying back to the crease

22.5

Swann to Hussey, no run, Hussey stretches out to smother this one

22.6

Swann to Hussey, 1 run, slipping just down the leg side, and it's tickled round the corner for a single

Australia 58/3   MEK Hussey 8* (33b 1x4)

23.1

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, pushed right across Hussey from over the wicket, landing outside off and going even further and there's no way he's going to play at that

23.2

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, Bresnan straightens his line but Hussey is watchful in defence, bristling with nerdish intensity even as he defends

23.3

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, left on length this time, just too short there

23.4

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, fuller, but wider again and Hussey wisely has nothing to do with it

23.5

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, Bresnan attacks the stumps, but the bat comes down in vertical defence

23.6

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, and - surprise, surprise - an exemplary leave to finish the over

Australia 58/3   MEK Hussey 8* (39b 1x4)

25.1

Anderson to Hussey, no run, loosener to start, curving away from Hussey who leaves alone

25.2

Anderson to Hussey, OUT, edged! Anderson strikes straight away, and what a delivery to do it with. Landing on middle and off and shooting towards the slips, the length was full and Hussey was drawn into the drive, getting a good, healthy edge that flies through to Prior

MEK Hussey c †Prior b Anderson 8 (44m 41b 1x4 0x6) SR: 19.51

Australia 58/4   MEK Hussey 8 (41b 1x4)
Overs 0-50
