Haddin hopeful of Clarke playing in Adelaide

Haddin hopeful of Clarke playing in Adelaide
“Michael had a good hit on Saturday. He is going to back up this afternoon, and be involved in our session. So I haven’t thought about it (captaincy) to be honest,” said Haddin at the team’s training session on Saturday.

“Michael’s been strong for the team for a long time. I think he’s a tremendous captain and we want our captain out there playing. All signs are that he’s going in the right direction, and like everyone else, we want Michael out there leading our team in the first hour of play here in Adelaide,” he added.

Clarke had put in some work at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Friday before joining the team here and Haddin is not thinking about captaincy at the moment.

“No, I haven’t,” said Haddin when asked if he was thinking about having to lead the team in Clarke’s absence on Tuesday.

Getting a grip on things after the Phillip Hughes tragedy, the Australians practised for the second consecutive day and Haddin said they will not look to complicate matters by over thinking about the events of the last two weeks.
