Haddin denies rift in Australian team following Arthur`s `cancerous` comments

Johannesburg: Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has said that there is no rift in the Australia squad playing in England, after former coach Mickey Arthur had claimed that there was a tussle between Test captain Michael Clarke and all-rounder Shane Watson.

Haddin said that the team was excited to be in an Ashes campaign and new coach Darren Lehmann had done a wonderful job like the rest of the staff.

Arthur had planned to sue Cricket Australia for up to 4 million dollars in compensation along with claiming in legal documents that captain Michael Clarke had described the role of Watson and his faction within the team as `cancer`.
