Video - 'We're Here To Win Cricket Games' - Haddin

Australia wicket-keeper Brad Haddin says that although his team can take plenty of heart from their performance at Trent Bridge, the tourists are determined to get back into the series.

Haddin was the last man to be dismissed as Australia went down by just 14 runs in a thrilling opening match in Nottingham, but he was in a defiant and upbeat mood as he faced the press at Lord's, where the second Test gets underway on Thursday (18th July).

"Obviously it was a disappointing result in the first Test, it was nice to get so close, but we're not here to get close," Haddin told reporters.

"We're here to win cricket games and where we are at and where we want to take this group, we're comfortable where everything is at."

He also rubbished allegations of splits in the team following reports that Mickey Arthur is suing Cricket Australia following his dismissal ahead of the series.
