Mike Hussey

Mike Hussey made an unbeaten half-century as Australia reached lunch on day two of the second Test against Australia on 267 for six.

Hussey was on 54 not out at the interval as the tourists added 59 runs for the loss of one wicket. Matthew Wade was the man to go, failing to add to his overnight score off 11, as he was caught at slip by Darren Bravo off Kemar Roach, the quick's third wicket of the innings.

Hussey, who was dropped on Sunday by wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh, fared rather better, as he built on his overnight score of 26, although he was given another leg-up by Baugh, who missed a chance to stump him off the bowling of Shane Shillingford. At the other end James Pattinson was unbeaten on 21.
