THRILLA IN ST. LUCIA:

Australia stun Pakistan to reach World Twenty20 final (Jamie Lillywhite , 5/14/10, BBC)

Mike Hussey hit an exceptional unbeaten 60 from 24 balls as Australia beat Pakistan by three wickets to set up an ICC World Twenty20 final with England.

Pakistan made a huge total of 191-6 in St Lucia, with Kamran Akmal making 50 and his brother Umar blasting four sixes in an unbeaten 56 from 35 balls.

Cameron White hit five sixes in 43 from 31 balls but Australia seemed out of it needing 70 from the final five overs.

Yet Hussey's three sixes in the last over sealed it with a ball to spare.


The video is up at The Box and it's one of the great sports feats of recent years.
