Haddin hundred drives New South Wales

Scorecard

Brad Haddin responded to being left out of Australia's Test team with an unbeaten century on the first day against Victoria at the SCG. Haddin made 108 not out in his first Sheffield Shield match since returning from the Champions League Twenty20, having also scored a ton in his last Shield game before the tournament, and he led New South Wales to 293.

Haddin was dropped twice by Jayde Herrick and rapidly ran out of batting partners, reaching his hundred only after the No.11 Doug Bollinger had joined him at the crease. His innings featured 12 fours and two sixes and along with the opener Scott Henry was the stand-out for the Blues, who had stumbled to 2 for 26 after Victoria's debutant Louis Cameron grabbed two early wickets.

Cameron, a 20-year-old fast bowler, had both David Dawson and Nic Maddinson caught by Cameron White at slip before Henry and Steven Smith steadied the innings. Henry made a career-best 78 and Smith contributed 30, but it was Haddin who pushed the Blues up to a reasonable score after coming to the crease at 4 for 117.

Cameron finished with 3 for 61 and Herrick picked up 3 for 72, while the offspinner Glenn Maxwell claimed 2 for 12 from six overs. At stumps, the Victorians had reached 0 for 12 in reply, with Chris Rogers on 4 and Ryan Carters on 8.
