Australian wicketkeeper plays mind games in the wake of his side’s massive win.
Australian ‘keeper Brad Haddin has rubbed further salt into the wounds of the England side by saying he could see in their eyes and their body language they did not like facing Mitchell Johnson on day four at the Gabba.
Johnson was talked about as being the enforcer and the X-factor Australia needed to get control of the Ashes again, and the left-arm pace-man proved to be just that.
Haddin made solid contributions with the bat, scoring two half-centuries in what was his 50th Test match, with his partnership with Johnson when Australia were in trouble on day one, vital in the context of the 381-run victory by the home side.
England will have 10 days to regroup, but not before a tour game in Alica Springs, in the lead-up to the next Test match in Adelaide.
