Former Australian opener Michael Slater explains to the viewers that Brad Haddin‘s minimal shuffling and courage to show the makers name while playing the pull shot has been one of the biggest reasons behind the WicketKeeper-Batsman’s success in counter-attacking the England bowlers in the ongoing Ashes series.


The Ashes has been a remarkable turnaround for Haddin, who continued his remarkable resurgence by scoring his fifth consecutive first innings half century as Australia posted 326 in the opening day of the Sydney Ashes Test, and it was poetic that the toddler was there to celebrate his achievements.


According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Haddin pushed his cricketing life aside when his daughter, then 17-months-old, fell ill and was subsequently diagnosed with neuroblastoma while he was touring the West Indies in March 2012 and his international career looked over with his replacement Matthew Wade‘s performance in his absence.
