Mike Hussey brings Australia home

How appropriate that the update immediately following our embiggenment of Michael Bevan should revolve around his spiritual successor in the Australia team, Mike Hussey. A top order collapse and the number six batsmen brings Australia home alongside the number eight. Bevan would have been proud.

Mike Hussey top-scored in today's one-dayer against England with only 46 not out. Mal Loye was the second-highest scorer with a run-a-ball 36 on his debut, including a trademark slog-swept six off none other than Brett Lee. It was strange that it was such a low-scoring pitch, because the pitch wasn't bad. They never are for one-day matches.

In truth, Hussey should have been given out caught behind off James Anderson on 19, but the decision went his way. This arguably influenced the outcome of the match, but there's never any way of knowing. In any case, if England deserved a win, they should have scored more than just 155.

A nod to Brett Lee as well who was 20 not out when the winning runs were struck. Brett Lee can bat. Watch this space.

England 155 all out
Australia 156-6
