Australia’s former wicketkeeper, Brad Haddin is wary of Pakistan’s pace attack and believes that the left-arm duo of Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz along with Yasir Shah an be a problem for the home team.
Brad Haddin talked to cricket.com.au about the unpredictability of Pakistan team, “What are they going to bring? I think that’s the question you ask every time Pakistan come out to these shores. You actually have no idea what they’re going to play like.”
“If they bring their A-game, they can definitely get 20 wickets and I think they’ve got the bowlers to worry us,” said Haddin.
Pakistan have always been vulnerable on fast and bouncy pitches and the former wicketkeeper believes that veteran middle-order batsmen, Younis Khan and Misbah Ul Haq will be the key. He predicted that Starc will bother the visitors.
“Whether they can get enough runs on the board, it’s going to rely a lot on their old guys to see if they can stand up to the pace of Starc and the consistency of Hazlewood. It could be a great series to watch, but I think they’re going to struggle with Starc, to be honest,” he said.
Brad Haddin told that Mickey Arthur’s experience of working with Australia will come handy for them.
“Those guys, no matter what they say, they’re going to have something deep down in their stomach that it will be personal because they were both moved on Cricket Australia,” said Haddin. “They’ll want to beat the Aussies more than anyone.”
