Hussey let out a roar of joy as he hit that shot. Waqar Younis hung his head down. Joy and sorrow overlap on the field.
It has been said before but it's worth repeating here. John Arlott had written about it in 1948 at the end of a successful tour of England by Don Bradman's men. ""Australianism," wrote Arlott, "means single-minded determination to win - to win within the laws but, if necessary, to the last limit within them. It means where the 'impossible' is within the realm of what the human body can do, there are Australians who believe that they can do it - and who have succeeded often enough to make us wonder if anything is impossible to them. It means they have never lost a match - particularly a Test match - until the last run is scored or their last wicket down."
Spare a thought for Pakistan, though. What guts they showed. What a game they played. Yet they lost.
Afridi: "It was a very good total. The way the White and Hussey played .. they played mature and good innings. We perhaps lost it in the last over. Ajmal has bowled really well in this tournament ... Kamran and Salman gave us a good start and Umar then played really well."
Clarke: "Michael Hussey is absolute freak. He and White played superbly. Once Cameron got out I thought It was going to be really tough but with Hussey in you never know. We thoughts if we have wicketrs in hand we can chase. BUt after losing three quick wickets, I thought it was going to be difficult. People will enjoy our win today and I can't wait to get to Barbados! I need some runs. I do."
Hussey: "By the end there I was just swinging hard as I could every ball. I can't believe we have won the game. This is the best feeling of my career. White played well. Pakistan played really well, I wasn't sure whether we would do it. This game continues to amaze. This is the best feeling in my career. I can't explain it. "
And that's it from us. Thanks for logging on. Good bye and good luck.
Hussey calls for a drink. 18 from the last over. Ajmal to bowl.
Ian: "Kamran Akmal has come a long way to answer his critics on his glovework. It's been excellent, and in terms of attitude and character he's right in the middle of the action like all wickies should be. Add to that excellent 50 and he is probably looking at Man of the Match too, if Pakistan win."
