Australia head coach Darren Lehmann has admitted that it is disappointing to see wicketkeeper-batsman Brad Haddin go through a lean patch with the bat.

Lehmann’s comments come after Haddin has only scored 21 runs at a dismal average of seven in the first two Tests.

“We need Brad to make runs, he knows that,” Lehmann was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald. “He’s been working really hard behind the scenes. He’d be disappointed with a couple of Test matches so far. He does offer a lot behind the scenes, which we really love, and his keeping has been exceptional.

“But still he’s got to make some runs. We can’t have our No. 7 not making any runs, he knows that. He’s working really hard on it, so hopefully he’ll get some runs in Melbourne.”
