4.1

Mupariwa to Hussey, no run, a change of bowling, and a watchful start from Hussey who left well alone outside off stump

4.2

Mupariwa to Hussey, 1 wide, width again, but left alone again

4.2

Mupariwa to Hussey, no run, tempting line, just begging to be biffed. But Hussey isn't going to fall for it just yet. He's got a job to do here ...

4.3

Mupariwa to Hussey, no run, tighter to the stumps, but Hussey can't work it away square. No pace to utilise at all

4.4

Mupariwa to Hussey, no run, driven, but uneasily, out to cover

4.5

Mupariwa to Hussey, no run, wide of off stump, and this time it's called, a little harshly, if you ask me. Meanwhile, there's massive support for Zimbabwe in the stands. Everyone loves an underdog

4.6

Mupariwa to Hussey, 1 run

Australia 21/3   MEK Hussey 1* (6b)
5.1

Brent to Hussey, no run, excellent line and length from Brent, jagging back into Hussey just enough to hurry his defensive stroke

5.2

Brent to Hussey, no run, going across the batsman this time, and nibbled at uneasily. Hussey is looking extremely rusty in the rain

5.3

Brent to Hussey, no run, lovely delivery, swinging across the left-hander's bows and through to the keeper

5.4

Brent to Hussey, 1 run, on the pads and clipped away. A welcome run for the beleaguered Aussies

Australia 22/3   MEK Hussey 2* (10b)
6.1

Mupariwa to Hussey, 1 run, pushed into the covers and another jogged single, Hussey simply hasn't found his timing yet and Taibu cleans up

6.5

Mupariwa to Hussey, 1 run, good areas once again, as the cliche goes. But areas are what it's all about for Zimbabwe

Australia 27/3   MEK Hussey 4* (12b)
7.1

Chibhabha to Hussey, no run, Chibhabha replaces the excellent Brent, and starts accurately enough

7.2

Chibhabha to Hussey, no run

7.3

Chibhabha to Hussey, no run, right on the spot again. No pace to work with at all

7.4

Chibhabha to Hussey, 1 run, defended with an angled bat, and Hussey hustles through for an urgent single

Australia 33/3   MEK Hussey 5* (16b)
8.1

Utseya to Hussey, FOUR, lovely drive, and a confident strike as Hussey makes room and places his lofted drive superbly

8.2

Utseya to Hussey, no run, a squeaked appeal as Hussey cramps himself for room

8.3

Utseya to Hussey, 1 run, flicked out to the midwicket sweeper

8.5

Utseya to Hussey, 2 runs, nudged out to midwicket for another single

8.6

Utseya to Hussey, 3 runs, nearly a terrible mix-up as Symonds hurtles back for a chancy third bye. Hussey attempted a reverse-sweep, nutmegged the keeper, but picked up some vital runs nonetheless

Australia 48/3   MEK Hussey 15* (21b 1x4)
9.1

Chibhabha to Hussey, no run, Hussey dances down the track but is forced to adjust into a late defensive prod as Chibhabha hits the seam

9.2

Chibhabha to Hussey, OUT, Sibanda pulls off a brilliant direct hit from point, and Hussey is on his way! That's a massive wicket. He dropped the ball into the off side and set off for the run, but was sent back as Sibanda swooped and hit with one stump to aim at

MEK Hussey run out 15 (20m 23b 1x4 0x6) SR: 65.21

Australia 48/4   MEK Hussey 15 (23b 1x4)
