Phillips says Haddin 'turning back time' in Ashes with 'incredible batting'

Sydney, Dec 14 : Former Australian keeper Wayne Phillips has said that his one time Australian Cricket Academy student Brad Haddin is turning back the years in incredible fashion - improving by the ball at age 36, according to reports.

According to, 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.
