Early 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?
