Hussey smashes ton


An Australia side much-changed from the team that lost to England at the Oval five days ago posted 345 all out. Hussey led the way as he staked his claim for selection in the upcoming limited overs matches against England by hitting 111 from just 83 balls.

In reply Scotland got off to a spirited start as openers Gavin Hamilton and Fraser Watts put on a quick 51. But the hosts then lost four wickets for 31 runs and Australia wrapped up the tail to bowl Scotland out for 156 from 39.3 overs.

Australia did not get off to the start they wanted when David Warner was out for a duck in the first over. Clarke also fell cheaply bowled off a slower ball from Gordon Goudie. Watson scored ata brisk pace before he was caught when he flicked Nel to Ryan Watson at deep square leg for a 41-ball 68. Cameron White could only make 19. Hussey and Adam Voges then joined hands as the duo added 114 runs from 83 balls.
