Michael Hussey was bowled by Kevon Cooper in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 game between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals. Mumbai are chasing 190 for victory, but to qualify for playoffs, they have to get it inside 14.3 overs. In 4.2 overs, they have raced to 53 for two. Kieron Pollard and Corey Anderson are in the centre.

 

Anderson was given a promotion to No 3 and he took the attack instantly. When Shane Watson came to bowl the third over, he smashed the first ball through mid-off for four and then pulled one to mid-wicket for a six. Later in the over, Watson edged one over third-man and that went for a four.

 

Dhawal Kulkarni then came on for the fourth over and he was smashed first ball for a six straight down the ground by Anderson. Hussey then charged down the ground and hit it for a six over square-leg. It went high in the air, but sailed well into the stands. The fifty came in 3.5 overs with Hussey hitting a brace through cover.

 

Earlier, Mumbai won the toss and chose to bowl first in a crucial encounter. With the equations in place, they needed to bat second as that would make their task relatively easier. Mumbai brought back Corey Anderson and dropped Marchant de Lange. Rajasthan also made a few changes to their side.
