The Ashes 2013-14

Haddin can carry on as long as he wishes

He's back in the Test side and he's a crucial cog in Australia's renaissance. Brad Haddin has been the comeback king in 2013 and is a candidate for Man of the Series in the current Ashes contest. Rod Marsh, in the Age reminds us that Haddin was never dropped and has battled back to earn the right when he wants to call time on his career.

"He decided, at age 35, I've got more cricket left in me. I'm going to go out there and enjoy it, and play it for exactly the right reasons. As a consequence he has sparkled. Having played as much cricket as Brad has, he's always going to be the one that makes the decision. His performances have been outstanding. I haven't talked to him about it, but I have a sneaking feeling that if we were to get to No.1 in all three forms of the game, I think Brad would retire."
