Sydney: Australian Test cricketer Brad Haddin has said that his team`s batsmen would be well prepared to face England`s Graeme Swann as players like Steve Smith, George Bailey and Michael Clarke were really good players of spin.

According to, Haddin also pointed out that the wickets would not be as giving as they were in England.

He further said that Swann was a big player for England and they had to find a way to combat him, adding that the best way to do it was by scoring runs.

Like most finger spinners, Swann struggles to penetrate in Australia, the report said.

Despite the fact that England recorded a landslide series win here three years ago he could manage just 15 wickets at 39 in the five Tests which included a five wicket haul in Adelaide but nothing more than two wickets in any other innings, the report added.
