(Cricket) Australia dig in after early scare
(01-03 12:39)

Australia were 201 for 5 wickets at tea after being sent in by England on the opening day of the fifth Ashes test in Sydney, Australia today.
Brad Haddin (59) and Steve Smith (48) have shared in an unbeaten 104-run stand for the sixth wicket.
Haddin scored his sixth half-century of the series.
At the tea break, Australia had fallen to 97 for 5 when Stuart Broad picked up George Bailey for one in the third over after lunch.
Broad (2 for 42) found a thin edge off Bailey's bat and Alastair Cook needed two attempts to grasp the catch at first slip.
But that was the only highlight of the session for the visitors as Haddin and Smith stole the momentum. —AFP/AP
