THE way that Brad Haddin learnt of his axing from the Australian Test side speaks volumes about the man.

    THERE’S nothing like Australian Olympic glory to propel a team or an individual into our national psyche. Jon Anderson counts down our most memorable performances of all time.

    DARREN Lehmann has made an emotional defence of his sacking of Brad Haddin, calling it “the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make as a coach or player”.

    ENGLAND is 2-1 up in the Ashes and boy are the Poms letting us know about it, with one former Test star issuing a withering take down of the Aussies.

    SELECTORS have assured Michael Clarke he has all the time he needs to fix his struggling form after the captain took the blame for Australia’s crushing loss at Edgbaston.
