England had to withstand the threat of Michael Hussey to earn a nine-run victory over Australia in their World T20 warm-up tie on Monday.

Stuart Broad's side appeared on track to coast to a fifth successive win over Australia this year but Hussey, who hit 71, single-handedly kept his team's hopes alive after wrecking young spinner Danny Briggs' figures with three consecutive sixes over midwicket.

However Broad returned to have Hussey lbw, and from there Australia ran out of steam to finish short of 172 for six.
