Wicketkeeper not happy with Vettori's comments

7:16 pm on 2 February 2009

The Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has branded New Zealand skipper Daniel Vettori "low" for questioning his integrity in a bitter aftermath to the Chappell-Hadlee cricket series opener.

Haddin declared his innocence and lashed out at Vettori after the veteran spinner stopped short of calling the Australian a cheat following the controversial dismissal of Neil Broom in the Kiwis' two-wicket win in Perth yesterday.

Vettori believed Broom was not bowled by spinner Michael Clarke, but rather Haddin's gloves had removed the bails.

Haddin admits his gloves crept forward of the stumps but he's adamant Clarke's delivery hit the woodwork before bouncing into his gloves.

He says he's disappointed that Vettori didn't have the decency to come and speak to him after the game if he had an issue with it rather than air his thoughts in a press conference.
