Ponting says 'experienced' Haddin key to Oz winning return Ashes

Sydney, Oct 26 : Former Australian Test captain Ricky Ponting has said that he believes veteran wicketkeeper Brad Haddin can be the X-factor for Australia in winning back the Ashes.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Haddin's form with both the gloves and the bat was a bright spot for Australia in this year's 3-1 series loss in England.

He has also regained his place in the Australian one-day team for the current tour of India and has stated a desire to continue his career until the 2015 World Cup, the report said.

Ponting believed Haddin, who turned 36 on Wednesday, possesses the type of fighting qualities that will be invaluable in bringing back the urn back Down Under, the report added.

He said that it was great to see Haddin back and enjoying his cricket, adding that having an experienced guy like him was what Australian cricket needed.
