Australia‘s Brad Haddin feels that South Africa deserve their spot as the No 1 side in Test cricket due to their consistent performances over the years.


Haddin said that series’ like the one against South Africa will be a real test of character for the Aussies and it will be a tough challenge for the Australians to tame the Proteas in their own backyard.


Haddin also shrugged aside the cancellation of Australia’s warm-up game at Potchefstroom due to bad weather and maintained that his side had prepared well to face the South Africans.


Haddin concluded that the upcoming series would test Australia’s mettle and will help them gauge as to where they really stand in world cricket.
