Brad Haddin Picks Out The Moment That Turned The World Cup Final In Australia’s Favour
In Willow Talk’s review podcast basking in the glow of a sixth Aussie World Cup win, Brad Haddin picked out Travis Head’s catch to remove Rohit Sharma as the moment that turned the final in Australia’s favour.
BRAD HADDIN ON THE MOMENT THAT TURNED THE WORLD CUP FINAL:
“People won’t give that catch enough credit with the circumstances of the game,” Hads said of Head’s catch running back and diving with the flight of the ball.
“Rohit Sharma was on, he was putting his presence on the game, he was taking it to the Australian fast bowlers, he was taking it to Glenn Maxwell.
“And to be able to run back the way he did, on the occasion that he did it in, and to take that catch, that there was the turning point in the game.“
MORE ON TRAVIS HEAD IN THE WORLD CUP FINAL:
Hads said that the danger signs were flashing for the Aussies, and Head’s grab meant they could get the game back on their terms.
“If Rohit Sharma continues to go the way he did, even if it was just 10 or 15 overs, he could have nearly played Australia out of the game.
“But it was that attitude to get yourself in the position to influence the result of the game, and that’s what Travis Head did there… that catch was as good as it gets, under pressure, in a big event like a World Cup.
“It doesn’t get any better.”
MORE ON TRAVIS HEAD:
Hads was also full of praise for Head’s domineering ton in the chase.
“There’s gonna be kids all around the world that turn up to grade cricket trying to grow a dodgy moustache,” Hads said.
“Mate, he is going down in folklore after that innings.”
