15.5

Shafiul Islam to MEK Hussey, 1 run, again drives straight to Shakib who fumbles and Hussey gladly steals a single

Australia 87/6   MEK Hussey 20* (17b 1x4)

16.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to MEK Hussey, SIX, Incredible timing! Full toss on leg stump, but they still have to be out away. Hussey stood his ground and flicked it nonchalantly over square leg for a six

16.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to MEK Hussey, 1 run, works this one behind square for a single. Hussey is playing a wonderful hand here

16.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to MEK Hussey, FOUR, Mashrafe is losing the plot after a fine spell until now. This one again is on leg stump, as all the previous balls this over, with fine leg in the circle. Hussey says thank you very much mate and redirects the ball behind square leg

16.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to MEK Hussey, FOUR, expertly played! Finally Ashrafe gets it outside off, but there was enough room for Hussey to make a measured surgical cut to send it scurrying fine to the third man fence

16.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to MEK Hussey, 1 run, cuts it away hard straight to cover for a single. Great over for Aus.

Australia 106/6   MEK Hussey 36* (22b 3x4 1x6)

17.1

Shakib Al Hasan to MEK Hussey, FOUR, Wah! Reverse sweep from Hussey, that was a full toss outside off, Hussey spotted the gap behind square and sent the ball to the fence with a backhand swat

17.2

Shakib Al Hasan to MEK Hussey, 1 run, bunts this one down to long on to turn the strike over

17.5

Shakib Al Hasan to MEK Hussey, 1 run, Hussey gets down the track and drives to long off for a single

Australia 117/6   MEK Hussey 42* (25b 4x4 1x6)

18.3

Abdur Razzak to MEK Hussey, 1 run, swings it to the leg side and takes another tight single

Australia 126/6   MEK Hussey 43* (26b 4x4 1x6)

19.1

Shafiul Islam to MEK Hussey, 1 run, full and very wide outside off, he does well to get bat on to that and it dribbles away to point

19.3

Shafiul Islam to MEK Hussey, 1 run, good death bowling from Shafiul, he keeps it full outside off and Hussey can't get under it or time the swipe to long on. Just a single

19.5

Shafiul Islam to MEK Hussey, 2 runs, Hussey jumps out to convert the yorker into a hittable ball and takes it on the full, he drives it from outside off to the left of the fielder at long on who does extremely well to cover ground and fire in a sharp throw, but the bowler fails to collect cleanly as he tries to break the stumps. That is a missed run-out chance.

19.6

Shafiul Islam to MEK Hussey, 1 wide, OUT, Smith is run out. That was very wide outside off and Hussey could not connect as he stretched out. Smith was eager to run across and nearly made his ground, but Rahim's under-arm got him just short of the crease. Great innings from Smith

SPD Smith run out 27 (29m 18b 1x4 2x6) SR: 150.00

Australia 139/7   MEK Hussey 47* (29b 4x4 1x6)
