Hussey century powers Australia: 1st Test, Day 2 (Hobart) - 2 of 2

Mike Hussey (115 not out) reached his fourth century of the year before Australia declared at 450-5 just before tea on a rain hit day.

Hussey was dropped by Mathews in a simple chance as he brought up his ton. Australia dominated again after losing Michael Clarke (74) early after resuming on 299-4.

At the close, Sri Lanka were in deep trouble having lost Karunaratne and the two big fish - Sangakkara and Jayawardena - very cheaply.

Australia 5 for 450 dec (Hussey 115*, Hughes 87, Clarke 74, Wade 68*, Warner 57, Welegedara 3-130).
