I have seen Hussey's knock and it was simply brilliant. As the
partnership grew, Hussey was confident that McGrath would stay with
him long enough for his century. After the century you could read his
lips saying to McGrath, "thanks mate for staying with me".
What surprised me was South African bowling indiscipline. They
continuously bowled outside the off stump to McGrath and he was happy
to leave them alone. McGrath's sweep shots to Boye were great.
Finally, Kallis will remember his dropped catch for a while. Score was
9/248. Hussey was on 27. He tried to cut Pollock. It was a regulation
slip catch little above his head and to his right. Ball was not
traveling fast at all. Kallis grassed it! Oh dear!
