Good news for Australia, Brad Haddin is expected to get fit in time for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Haddin, who while diving for a catch on the first day of the second test match against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi injured his right shoulder, was cleared of any fracture.  

When Michael Clarke was asked about Haddin’s participation in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, he said: 

Yeah definitely,” “I’m even hopeful that he’ll still take part in the one-day series against South Africa

“I think he went for a scan and there was no break there so it’s just bruising. He’s in a little bit of pain still today but I think in 10 days’ time and Hadds will be a lot better than where he is now.”

It remains to be seen whether Haddin will get fit in time for the last two ODIs against South Africa. Matthew Wade has been selected as the wicket-keeper for the first three ODIs and if Haddin doesn’t get fit in time, Australia might persist with Wade throughout the series. 

Haddin’s availability for the Test series against India looks sure shot and he would definitely push himself even if he is not 100% as this might well be his last Test series in Australia and he would really like to show India what wicket-keeping and hard-hitting means in cricket. But if this doesn’t happen, I think that Sam Whiteman or Chris Hartley will push a strong case for themselves for their debut.
