Haddin got right in the face of the New Zealand opener after he was clean bowled by all-rounder Glenn Maxwell.
The veteran Australian clapped and yelled in the face of New Zealand’s semi-final hero, causing many to announce their displeasure in Haddin’s actions on Twitter.
Some went as far as saying that Haddin was a “genuinely bad and revolting human being”, while some Australians cited the wicketkeeper’s behaviour as a reason to support New Zealand in the final.
Check out some of the reaction below:
I have caught up on the cricket and I’ve decided that there is no amount of prison time that can deter me from murdering Brad Haddin

Brad Haddin’s reaction to Guptill’s wicket is why my raging distaste for the Australian Cricket team continues to.. er.. rage.

Gee that was ugly from Brad Haddin…mediocre cricketer at best so I guess he’s just trying to stay relevant.

#AUSvNZ Brad Haddin shouting at Guptill. Another low point of Australian cricket.
