The former vice-captain and wicket-keeper of the Australian Cricket Team Brad Haddin has been surprised by the decision to give chance to Cameron Bancroft in the final T20 game against India as he thinks that Tim Paine and Peter Nevill have been much better.
Haddin said that Bancroft is also a good character but he has not played many games in Big Bash League (BBL) this season so he did not have much practice. He said that Paine had an outstanding BBL whereas Nevill did a great job behind the wickets.
The former keeper said that Bancroft has some good batting skills but he cannot be allowed to keep the wickets for the national team yet. He said that Suresh Raina gave a chance to Bancroft which he missed and the player went on to play a match winning knock.
Raina had just arrived when Bancroft missed an easy stumping so the player stayed and scored 48 not out to make sure that India became the first side in the history to whitewash Australia in Australia. They win also gave India victory over Aussies ahead of World T20.
Haddin said that such experiments should not be done especially when the World T20 is around the corner and they should stick with the players who have been performing well in the domestic matches. He says that Bancroft's selection did not make sense.
