    haha Yeah, he does slaughter some interviews Haydos. He'd have to be the worst interviewee in the Australian team, the way he waffles on and mixes his metaphors - he never makes much sense. If ever there was a guy who should let the bat do his talking, it's him.

    Can't stand him. I can't stand anyone of Hayden, Symonds, Harbhajan, Sreesanth. Don't want anything to do with them, and will be actively rooting against all four. Symonds has given me much satisfaction already, hopefully he stays out of the team. Now if only the BCCI do something about that idiot Harbhajan.

    AWTA. Seems like a nice enough guy, but doesn't seem to be the smartest person either at times

    Obviously don't know the bloke, but he seems to suffer from white line fever. Don't mind him as a bloke, but he went down in my estimation with the Ishant impersonation thing this year.
    Does a fair bit of work with charity apparently, which must count for something.

    Don't ask why I did this (didn't take long , anyway). Just that Haydos can and has scored against the best Australia has to offer;

    1993/94

    In a season where McGrath took wickets against everyone and NSW were the benchmark side, Haydos hit him for 173 in this match (out of 281 in the 2nd dig), didn't play in the return match;

    http://aus.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/1...07NOV1993.html

    1994/95

    Against Vic with Merv Hughes and Paul Reiffel, a damn-near run-a-ball double ton in the days when they were a rarity, especially in Aussie domestic cricket;

    http://aus.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/1...14NOV1994.html

    Really kicked on after QLD won the Shield, was a huge reason why they won it regularly thereafter in fact.

    1997/98

    181 against a full-strength NSW side including McGrath, the Waughs, etc.

    http://aus.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/1...18OCT1997.html

    1999/00 (season before getting picked in the Aussie side again

    Against the Lee's and McGill in Sydney;

    http://aus.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/1...22NOV1999.html

    And they were just the examples I could remember off the top of my head. Fact is, before Haydos was picked again in 2001, he was the most feared opening batsman in the country at home or away, on damp fliers (which there plenty of in QLD in the 90's) and roads. It didn't matter, he hit you and hit you hard.

    As for the bloke, what I've heard about him suggests he's just a hard nut on the field. I'm sure he's a nice bloke generally.

    Not especially. I don't hate the guy personally or anything but he's not one of my favourite players to watch, and personality wise he doesn't exactly seem my sort of bloke, but you could say that about most professional sportspeople.

    I do think he's very good though, and underrated on these boards.

    I like him. He seems like a good bloke, a real family man. His interviews are a bit scratchy, but that doesn't really matter. He puts ages into practicing and when he plays, he usually comes out tops on the bowlers.

    Yeah I feel pretty much the same way. Got a lot of respect for him as a batsman but don't really like him and I don't, on the whole, enjoy watching him bat.

    The one exception to that was when I was at the ground for his 181 against NZ, that was pretty special to watch. The sound as the ball came off the bat that day was unlike anything I'd heard before at a cricket match.

    I can't get past the fact that he is the biggest bible bashing hypocrite cricket has ever seen.

    So no, I do not.

    Yeah he doesn't so much hit the ball as abuse it, some days.

    Agree that he seems to have the white line fever.


    Don't particularly like him and neither do I rate him as high as some people do here as a batsman, but I do think that by a number of others in this forum, he is almost criminally under rated..... A bit like Sehwag in that sense..
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Opening batsmen, I think, generally get under-rated unless they're the stodgy types, like openers are 'supposed' to be. Then, instead, they get over-rated like Akash Chopra has been lately or Chris Rogers was before he played against India.

    Irritates me no end. Not sure why, just does. Have never really been a fan of him as a cricketer or a person.
