Adelaide (Australia) (AFP) - Michael Clarke and Brad Haddin swept to centuries as Australia took control of the second Ashes Test over England in Adelaide on Friday. Skipper Clarke claimed his third century in five Ashes Tests and the 26th in his 99th Test, while vice-captain Haddin blasted four sixes and 11 fours in his fourth Test ton. The pair put on 200 runs for the sixth wicket -- the highest sixth-wicket stand in all Tests in Adelaide, eclipsing the 191 shared by Imran Khan and Wasim Akram for Pakistan in 1990. At tea, the home side were 516 for eight with Haddin unbeaten on 108 and Ryan Harris not out 29.
