Eranga to Haddin, no run, another good ball just outside off, Haddin defends

86.5

Eranga to Haddin, OUT, loud appeal for caught behind and Haddin's been given, he isn't happy with the decision and asks for a review. The ball pitched on a good length outside off and seamed away a touch, Haddin did not come forward and pushed at it. There was a noise as it passed the bat and there's no conclusive evidence to suggest there was no edge. Haddin has to go. An odd one. You'd assume no batsman would review if he had nicked it, so either he didn't or he didn't know he did.
