The Ashes: Phillips says Haddin turning back time with incredible batting
Sydney: Former Australian keeper Wayne Phillips has said that his one time Australian Cricket Academy student Brad Haddin is turning back the years in incredible fashion - improving by the ball at age 36, according to reports.
According to News.com.au, Haddin has wrong-footed England at every marker in the return Ashes bout with decisive half centuries in the Brisbane Ashes opener and 118 during a record 200-run stand with Michael Clarke in Adelaide.
Haddin`s second Test 118 was arguably more valuable than Prior`s 118 in a dead rubber Sydney Test three years ago, the report said.
Phillips rates the significance of Haddin`s series changing knocks, punctuated by 94 in the first Test with Australia staggering at 6/132, equal to left-armer Mitchell Johnson`s exhilarating heroics, the report added.
He said that Australia looks a more settled group and Haddin provides them the unity.
