Video - Haddin Urges Australia To Keep Pushing

Australia wicket-keeper and vice-captain Brad Haddin knows that Australia need to keep working hard if they are to make their strong position in the Brisbane Ashes Test count.

After bowling England out for 136 on a day which the home side dominated at the Gabba, Australia closed on 65 without loss to lead by 224 at stumps.

Haddin fell six runs short of a century in Australia's first innings of 295, but says that it is vital that his side do not get complacent on day three.

"We're in a good position after day two but there's a lot of cricket to play in this match so we've to come out with the same intent we showed tonight and keep moving the game forward in day three," he said.

During a wonderful spell for the home side in the afternoon session, England lost six wickets for nine runs and Haddin said those sort of game-changing periods of play can often happen at the Gabba.

"The Gabba is one of those grounds where things can happen quite quick, especially with the extra bounce. Sometimes when you do get on a roll here it's sometimes hard to stop."
