“My coach informed me that Haddin was having a rest and you need to go and keep for the Australians. I was really shocked and very happy. It was my first time experiencing so much pace, like Starc and Johnson, they are very speedy bowlers. It is a very big experience in my life. I am feeling very proud and I learnt something from that,” he was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia.
