In his last seven Test matches in Melbourne Hayden has six centuries

Although his six centuries in his last seven Test matches in Melbourne, 37 aged Hayden averages 23.50 in his last seven Tests having not scored a century since January and could be dropped if his poor run continues.

Scores of four and 12 in the first Test defeat by South Africa in Perth have seen his place at the top of the batting order come under scrutiny from Australia’s unforgiving cricket press.

He said, he will assess his future after Australia’s three-Test series against South Africa.
“I really want to play good Test match cricket for this next series and then see where we are at,”

“You feel slightly uncomfortable, slightly uneasy about it (being dropped) but that’s part of the great challenge of playing for your country and exactly why I want to play Test match cricket for Australia.”said Hayden.

Chief selector Andrew Hilditch admitted Hayden need to step up his performances, along with a host of other senior players, if Australia are to draw level with a buoyant South Africa in Melbourne.

“All the indications from Matthew is it’s just some time in the middle and the Boxing Day Test seems a pretty good time to do it,” he said.

But if the selectors do lose patience with Hayden, the likes of Phil Jacques or Shaun Marsh are likely to be in the frame to replace him.
