Michael Hussey hit 6 sixes in all to finish with an unbeaten 60 in just 24 deliveries

T20 world Cup 2010: Michael Hussey smashed 3 sixes in four balls to lead Australia to a remarkable three wicket win against heart attacker Pakistan cricket team in the last over of 14th May T20 World Cup semi final in St Lucia.
Michael Hussey hit 6 sixes in all to finish with an unbeaten 60 in just 24 deliveries as Australia passed Pakistan's 191 for 6 wickets, the joint second highest score of this tournament.
Australia were in trouble at 62 for 4 down in the ninth over but then Cameron White blasted 5 sixes in his 43 off 31 balls to get his side back in the game.
In last over Mitchell Johnson pushed a single to give Hussey the strike and the left hander responded with some astonishing batting. He pulled a quicker short ball over the mid-wicket boundary and then blasted the next delivery way over long On. Hussey followed up by slashing a four backward of point before whacking the penultimate delivery for another six over long On.
Earlier, Akmal brothers " Kamran and Umar " both scored fifties as defending champions Pakistan set Australia an imposing 192 to win their World T20 semi final.
In an innings that began with a Dirk Nannes maiden, opener Kamran made exactly 50 runs before big hitting younger brother Umar followed up with a blistering 56 not out as Pakistan made 191/6.
Kamran Akmal and left hander Salman Butt (32 runs) shared a first wicket stand of 82 runs. Even Australia’s normally fine fielding became ragged by the end, with usually tidy keeper Brad Haddin conceding 10 byes in an extras total of 20. At the end of the 6 over powerplay, Pakistan were 40 without loss.
Kamran Akmal, then cover drove the 5th ball of the over from the all runder for four and, off the last, cut the medium pacer for another boundary to complete a fine fifty, his 5th at this level, off just 32 balls with 2 sixes and 6 fours.
