Hussey developing as Australian bowler

9:18 am on 18 April 2012

Michael Hussey's growing reputation as a partnership-breaking bowler for Australia has been enhanced in the second cricket Test against the West Indies in Trinidad.

At lunch on day three, the Windies were 132 for 4 in reply to Australia's first innings of 311 with Hussey the only Australian bowler to claim a wicket in the morning session.

The 36-year-old, thrown the ball midway through the first session, took just 11 deliveries to break a 64-run stand between Darren Bravo and Shivnarine Chanderpaul.

Bravo was given out lbw for 38 after being rapped on his back pad to become just Hussey's seventh Test wicket but his fifth since Australia's tour of Sri Lanka last year.
