Clarke thinks Haddin has the potential to become the best wicketkeeper in Test cricket
Australian captain, Michael clarke, has announced that he believes Brad Haddin can become the best wicketkeeper in Test cricket, depending on whether he is available for selection once again.
Haddin, was all set to play in Australia’s series against the West Indies, however due to a last minute family emergency, he returned back home and was replaced by in form keeper Matthew Wade, who recorded his maiden Test century in the first innings of the third Test.
Sky News, quoted Clarke as saying: “In my opinion, Brad will come back into the Test side when fully fit and available.”
However, Clarke also had kind words for Matthew Wade, and is regarding him as the future of the Australian side.
“That’s certainly nothing against Wadey. He learned a lot during the one-day series through facing spin in completely different conditions to what he was used to back in Australia. He will continue to get better. Having the likes of Steve Rixon, Rod Marsh and also Brad Haddin around, when we can, will certainly help him,” Clarke said.
Clarke, also noted that the Australians had been through a long summer, and that they were looking to finish on a high against the West Indies before returning home.
