progress view command for linux


I am using the command
Code:
#dd if=/dev/sda|bzip2 -z|of=/mnt/sdb2/filename
to image a drive. If I remember correctly I could pipe some command into the middle of that line so that I could get some sort of progress indication. However I can't seem to remember what command it is. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks so much.
