It’s Hussey again as Aussies look set to level series

December 18, 2010


Australia took full advantage of the remarkable turnaround they manufactured on Friday to move to the brink of a famous Ashes victory over England on Saturday.

Once again it was Mike Hussey, under pressure before the series but sensational throughout it, who held the Australian innings together with a knock of 116, which enabled the hosts to set the tourists a winning target of 391. That would be the fourth highest fourth innings run chase ever if England achieved it.

Even given what has happened in the series so far, it would be a brave man or woman to back  them to do it. If you are feeling courageous, we may have the bookmaker for you.
