Hussey guides Australia to series whitewash in final Test

 

CRICKET:Michael Hussey saw Australia to victory in his final Test match as they sealed a five-wicket win and series whitewash against Sri Lanka in Sydney yesterday morning.

Hussey would not necessarily have anticipated getting one final innings when Sri Lanka were bowled out for 278 in the morning, Dinesh Chandimal stretching his side’s meagre lead to 140 with an impressive unbeaten 62.

But, led by Rangana Herath (three for 46), the tourists bowled well enough to make life uncomfortable for Australia and give Hussey the chance for one last slice of glory.

Hussey finished unbeaten on 27 as Australia scored 141 for five, but – ever the team man – he allowed Mitchell Johnson to hit the winning run, much to the crowd’s evident disappointment.
