A like-for-like for Adam Gilchrist, he has been rewarded for a rise from Australia Under-19 captain to a star of the domestic scene down under. Earmarked as reserve keeper from a relatively young age, he is comfortable operating anywhere in the order but his only opportunities to date have come at one-day level. Haddin has sound credentials, however, having led unfancied New South Wales to Pura Cup glory last winter. He finally got his chance for Australia in Tests following Adam Gilchrist's retirement in 2008.
