Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin was forced to leave the field in the morning session on day two in Abu Dhabi, after diving to take a catch and jamming his shoulder into the ground.

The veteran keeper fell hard on his right shoulder and it looked to have been dislocated. The catch he was attempting went to ground in the rush to see if he was ok, and he continued to play.

But after around 15 minutes the discomfort appeared too much, and he went off the field. David Warner took up the gloves in his stead, with the replacement fielder required to come from the playing XI, thus ruling Phil Hughes out.

Later reports from the change room said that the shoulder had not been dislocated, and that Haddin hadn't left the ground for scans. He was sitting with ice packs instead, in the hopes of returning later in the day.

He came to field after lunch, and battled through the pain until after tea, until he again left the field and Warner kept wicket until Pakistan declared on 570 for six.

After stumps, commentator Dean Jones Tweeted: "Just spoke to Brad Haddin.. Shoulder is swollen and angry.. He thought it did dislocate and it Popped back in.. He will be sore tomorrow!"
