Haddin hundred gives Aussies the edge

Brad Haddin proved his class with an opening day century for Australia A against Scotland at the Grange to put his side in healthy shape at the close on day one.

Haddin held the innings together while wickets fell around him and finally found Peter Siddle as a long-term partner. The pair shared 118 for the sixth wicket to gradually shrug off the game Scotland attack.

Haddin was involved in a few decent partnerships as he quietly moved past his half-century. His team-mates squandered stands that could have developed, but Haddin stuck around and played his own game. Too many short balls allowed him to deal in boundaries and in the evening session he passed his century with 11 fours.

Siddle arrived at No. 7 and played the anchor while Haddin opened up his repertoire of strokes, scoring in all corners of the outfield with ease. Siddle reached his own half-century playing his favoured cut for four that also brought up the century partnership. Read more
