  • Overs 0-50

Anderson to Haddin, FOUR, edged straight away, but Haddin gets four, big gap between second slip and gully and this runs along the ground straight through it to the third man rope


Anderson to Haddin, 1 run, Haddin is on his way straight away, driving sweetly wide of mid-off, Haddin has a way of getting under England's skin, his way is quite simple actually, score runs and tell the England boys all about every one of them

Australia 71/5   BJ Haddin 5* (2b 1x4)

Bresnan to Haddin, no run, straight ball meets a very straight bat, Haddin timing a defensive block perfectly to mid-on


Bresnan to Haddin, no run, Bresnan offers a bit of hit-me width, but Haddin is prepared to get his eye in and leave alone


Bresnan to Haddin, no run, lovely delivery this, fuller length and Bresnan finds some away movement, sneaks past a nervy push from Haddin


Bresnan to Haddin, no run, swing from the bowler, swing from the batsman, not a great shot, just a waft outside off stump


Bresnan to Haddin, no run, this time Haddin leaves alone, almost to punish himself for the previous shot


Bresnan to Haddin, no run, fuller and straighter from Bresnan and it earns him his fifth maiden in 10 overs, fine work from him

Australia 71/5   BJ Haddin 5* (8b 1x4)

Bresnan to Haddin, no run, very firm and classy drive straight back down the ground, Bresnan tumbles inelegantly but saves runs as he fields


Bresnan to Haddin, no run, pushed into the off side


Bresnan to Haddin, no run, clipped firmly to mid-on, no run but the sort of shot that should settle the frazzled Australian nerves

Australia 77/5   BJ Haddin 5* (11b 1x4)

Bresnan to Haddin, no run, Haddin is a wanton driver, just can't resist it, and why would he when he plays the shot so well? Sadly for him, he finds a diving Ian Bell at short cover here


Bresnan to Haddin, no run, good delivery here, just enough away nibble to make Haddin's drive uncertain


Bresnan to Haddin, no run, swing for Bresnan, plenty of it but from the hand, swing from Haddin too as he drives to point


Bresnan to Haddin, no run, Bresnan's hard work is rewarded with an outside edge, but it runs along the ground to point


Bresnan to Haddin, OUT, Bresnan has another and Haddin has gifted him this, flat-footed waft of a drive, flicked the edge and went through to Strauss. Pretty miserable stuff this from the home side

BJ Haddin c Strauss b Bresnan 5 (23m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 31.25

Australia 77/7   BJ Haddin 5 (16b 1x4)
