Perth: Australian wicketkeeper batsman Brad Haddin on Monday, fired a fresh salvo at the struggling Indian team ahead of Friday's third Test here, saying the visitors "break quicker than anyone in the world" when things are not going their way.
Haddin said the Australian team had discussed the mental frailty of Indian players during the second Test in Sydney last week, which the hosts won by an innings and 68 runs. "We spoke about a bit of that when we were batting. The longer we could keep them out on the field the bigger chance we had of breaking them. We know this side can be as fragile as any team in the world if things aren't going their way and they can turn on each other and the media turns on them pretty quick.
"We knew if we could keep them out there and put the numbers like we did on the board we knew we'd get the rewards because they break quicker than anyone in the world," Haddin was quoted as saying by the 'Sydney Morning Herald'.
