Toyota Memorable Moment - Vintage Mr Cricket

UPDATED 07 February, 2013 3:08PM AEST | by Cricket Australia

A vintage Mike Hussey innings guided Australia to victory on day four of the Vodafone Pink Test.

Chasing 141 for victory, the Aussies lost the key wickets of David Warner and skipper Michael Clarke early on to give Sri Lanka a faint hope of claiming an unlikely win.  

But it wasn't to be, as the Aussies went on to win by five wickets after Mitchell Johnson hit the winning run, much to the disappointment of the huge crowd wanting that honour to go to Mr Cricket. 

It was a move that highlighted Hussey's unselfish approach to cricket that has been a feature of his outstanding career and in doing so earns him our moment of the day as he once again proved his value as he guided the Aussies to another win and a 3-0 series clean sweep.
