According to News.com.au, Haddin has wrong-footed England at every marker in the return Ashes bout with decisive half centuries in the Brisbane Ashes opener and 118 during a record 200-run stand with Michael Clarke in Adelaide.
Haddin's second Test 118 was arguably more valuable than Prior's 118 in a dead rubber Sydney Test three years ago, the report said.
Phillips rates the significance of Haddin's series changing knocks, punctuated by 94 in the first Test with Australia staggering at 6/132, equal to left-armer Mitchell Johnson's exhilarating heroics, the report added.
He said that Australia looks a more settled group and Haddin provides them the unity.
