Brisbane: Former Australian wicketkeeper Ian Healy feels Brad Haddin’s experience is invaluable and his position in the side is safe. The 50-year-old Healy lauded Haddin’s leadership on Friday and said his position in Australia’s Test side is his for as long as he wants it.
The 37-year-old Haddin has previously hinted that the 2015 Ashes could signal the end of his career, saying last month that a third Ashes tour is “as big a carrot as you can have put in front of you”.
But the series against England is still over six months away and Haddin’s form is already under the microscope after another low score on the third day of the second Test against India . “I don’t have a problem with his (Haddin’s) position (in the side). He’s safe for as long as he wants to play and if his batting continues to plateau he won’t enjoy playing so he’ll get out, I’ll reckon,” Healy, was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.
