Gilchrist hails Haddin`s keeping performance in Perth as best ever from an Oz player
Sydney: Australian wicketkeeping legend Adam Gilchrist has hailed wicketkeeper-batsman Brad Haddin`s performance in the Perth Ashes Test as the best he has seen from an Australian.
Wicket-keeping greats are singing from the rafters about Australia`s unsung hero, who has staged a major rescue mission in each Test and is averaging 65 for the series, and his performances have been impossible to avoid from the moment he was recalled to be vice-captain of the Ashes tour.
According to News.com.au, Gilchrist said that he is thrilled for Haddin, adding that he cannot think of any more impressive, clinical precise wicket-keeping performance for Australia in Test cricket than the veteran keeper`s.
The report however, mentioned that it took a 4-0 drubbing in India earlier this year for the team to be shaken up and Haddin to be included as captain Michael Clarke`s deputy in an Ashes squad lacking experience in the post Ricky Ponting , Michael Hussey era.
Stating that things fortunately improved for Haddin after he had to leave the team, Gilchrist said that the enforced lay-off reinvigorated, reenergised and clarified a few things in his mind, adding that he is impressed that Haddin handled his omission from the team with positivity, which showed his quality.
