Brad Haddin’s first Test hundred

If he greeted you with anything other than 'g'day' you could probably sue himEarly in Brad Haddin’s innings, they showed his average on screen. It was 26. Someone, possibly Ian Healy, said that figure would be closer to 40 before too long. After 169 against New Zealand, Haddin now averages 36 in Tests, which seems a fairer figure.

If you’ve never seen Brad Haddin before, just imagine an Australian wicketkeeper. Now imagine an even more generic version of an Australian wicketkeeper. Now try again, but EVEN MORE generic. Now you’ve got it. It looks like that green hat’s part of his actual head.

According to Cricinfo, Brad Haddin’s nickname is BJ. This is presumably due to his initials, but we’re not sure we’d want to venture into international cricket with a nickname like that.

Honestly, who’d want to draw attention to the fact that they were a bachelor of journalism?

7 Appeals

  1. He seems to have descended straight from Ian Healey’s arse. It’s uncanny.

  2. Gnarled, gnuggety and gnritty. Very Healeyesque indeed. At least he doesn’t get to say “bowled Shaaayne” every second ball.

  3. He did say bowled ritzy alot, and that annoyed me.

  4. nothing wrong with journalism, KC.

  5. we’re not sure we’d want to venture into international cricket with a nickname like that.

    Brendan Julian?

  6. The resemblance to Healy is so strange.

    Did Healy ever have an affair or something, because that would explain a lot.

  7. “This is presumably due to his initials”

    Are you sure his middle name is Job?
