Hussey rescues Australia from the dead, buries Pakistan

Mike Hussey's inspired Australia to a breathtaking three-wicket win over Pakistan to book a final against England at the World Twenty20 cricket competition.

The defending champions were on track for an unlikely semi-final win at St Lucia after posting a big 191 for six in their 20 overs, but the unbeaten Australians never gave up and Hussey's magnificent 60 off 24 was enough for the win.

Hussey hit six sixes in total and despite needing 18 off the last over, he ensured they reached the total with a ball to spare.
