Mike Hussey on cloud nine

St Lucia: Micheal Hussey described his blistering knock of 60 of 24 balls against Pakistan as 'the best feeling you can have'.

With his side chasing a huge target of 191 and struggling at 139-6 in the 17th over, the 35 year old left hander pulled off a magical partnership along with Cameron White. White made a significant contribution as well scoring 43 runs of 31 balls.

Hussey scored 3 sixes of 4 balls to overhaul Pakistan's target of 191 where Pakistan were having an upper hand throughout the match. He now becomes the joint highest scorer of the tournament with one more game in hand.

"Hussey is an absolute freak," said skipper Micheal Clarke at the presentation ceremony. "He and White played superbly.

Australians now have a chance to win title in all formats of the game, if they are able to come out with the same result against England in Barbados.
