2.1

Sidebottom to Haddin, OUT, Sidebottom strikes again! Australia lose another wicket! Short and down the leg side from Sidebottom, hardly a great ball, but Haddin swung hard at it and it came off what looks like the thigh, Kieswetter took an excellent catch high to his left. Great catch but very unlucky for Haddin
