Brad Haddin declined to comment on Graeme Swann’ s grandmother’s comment but paid tribute to Swann the cricketer and the character on the field.
The Australian wicket-keeper said he was looking forward to playing under a world record crowd in the MCG. Haddin also said he was immune to people calling him old and stated that he would try to perform to the best of his abilities.
He had words of praise for Nathan Lyon calling him “outstanding” despite the Aussie pacers walking away with all the plaudits.
Australian wicketkeeping legend and national selector Rod Marsh has said that veteran wicketkeeper-batsman and Ashes hero Brad Haddin has earned the right to decide when he can retire. Although last year Haddin was thought to be pensioned off in favour of a player a decade younger than him, his rousing show in the winter Ashes on its opening day in Brisbane showed how much more he has left to give to the game, and made sure that the urn was back in Australia‘s grasp before afternoon tea in Perth.
