Ashes - Australia declare with huge lead on the board

Australia declared their first innings closed for 570-9 after tea on the second day of the second Ashes Test against England.


Australia vice-captain Brad Haddin blasted a fifth six off spinner Monty Panesar but departed for 118 soon after when he swiped at a Stuart Broad delivery only to nick a catch to fellow wicketkeeper Matt Prior.

Paceman Ryan Harris notched his second test half-century with a delightful square cut to the fence and finished unbeaten on 55 after caning the England attack with six fours and two sixes.

Number 11 batsman Nathan Lyon also helped himself to a six and finished unbeaten on 17 with Harris on 55 not out.
