Man-of-the-Match Hussey's post-match comments: " It was hard work. The ball did something all through the night. I think England did well .... It was really pleasing to get through this. We wanted to get a partnership going but unfortunately we kept losing wickets. And Lee did a great job at the end. He was quite pumped up."

And that wraps our coverage for the day. Meanwhile Shoaib Akthar and Danish Kaneria have rocked South Africa in the second Test. Please do tune in to that game. From me, Sriram Veera, and Sajan Nair, good bye and good luck.

Flintoff to Hussey, FOUR runs, That's it. All over. Fullish and just outside off stump, Hussey leans forward, square-drives it past point where Collingwood is beaten and the man at deep point rushes to his right, flings himself near the ropes and the ball evades him. Despairing drive, so close, yet so far. The story of the day as far as England are concerned. Australia register yet another win, do they ever get bored of it?!

Flintoff to Hussey, FOUR runs, Just four more needed. One stroke away. Short and just outside off stump (Flintoff is bowling from round the stumps) and Hussey rocks back and pulls it down and it screams to the midwicket boundary.
