'Centurion' Wade oblivious to Clarke's backing of first keeper Haddin

Dominca , Wed, 25 Apr 2012 ANI

Dominica (West Indies), Apr 25(ANI): Australian wicketkeeper Mathew Wade is not bothered by Australian captain Michael Clarke's firm support for Brad Haddin.

Wade strengthened his case to become Australia's number one wicketkeeper in the Test format by scoring a magnificent century against the West Indies on day two of the final Test match at Dominica.

Clarke has said throughout the tour that Haddin remains his first-choice wicketkeeper at the Test level and somewhat controversially, backed the unavailable veteran again over the weekend.

Wade has acknowledged Haddin would have been keeping wickets in the Tests had he not left early for personal reasons and, in his eyes, not even a potentially career-defining innings has changed the situation.

"Hadds was supposed to play this tour and I've come in and taken his spot from an unfortunate situation, personal reasons back home that Hadds has," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Wade, as saying.

"So, that's as far as I'm looking at it. I know it's cliche ... but that's as far as I'm looking at it. We're playing these games then, we've got a pretty big gap in Test cricket from there, and hopefully I can hold my spot in the one-dayers and go from there," he added. (ANI)
