    Haddin the bolter.

    The Sun-Herald also understands NSW wicketkeeper Brad Haddin, secretly placed on standby last week as cover for Ricky Ponting, has become Australia's World Cup bolter as a potential specialist batsman.

    The squad will be named early this week. Selectors have shed concerns about Haddin's ability to hold his own as a fielder if he plays in the same side as entrenched gloveman Adam Gilchrist.

    Victorian Brad Hodge is yet to cement his place at No.4 and there is an increasing belief in the corridors of power that Haddin is among the best six batsmen in the country.

    Na that's bull****. He's a quality batsman and great understudy for Gilchrist and deserves a place in the World Cup team as a reserve keeper and another batting option if stocks are low. However he certainly wouldn't be ahead of Hodge or Watson as a batsman alone.

    They were saying on the radio (Roebuck, Maxwell as well as Kerry) that he's reasonable in the field too.

    Personally i think Darren Lehmann should be recalled. 65 and 3/4 from 4.2 overs. Hes the best of Watson, Hogg and White all rolled into one.

    I have no doubt if the selectors said, 'come back Boof,' he would.

    He never retired from International cricket, and has stated since being dropped that he has not retired.

    Wouldn't that be a thing for him to be parachuted into the fray at this stage.

    Well, Australian cricket must be in FAR worse shape than i imagined.

    First, White in the side for his batting or hitting ability, and now they're talking Haddin!

    For what it's worth, i think Luke Ronchi should be the heir apparent to Adam Gilchrist. Very very good batsman, and just as aggressive.

    Yeah, makes sense. Haddin's averaged well over 50 for the last few seasons now.
