I'll stab you, and you two won't make it out of Barbados alive. Brad Haddin recalls unpleasant exchange with irate Windies

Then, as we were about to leave for the T20 World Cup, he said, "You two won't make it out of Barbados alive; I will stab you." I apologise, and at that point it started to mist, and I'm not really sure what occurred after that. Jonno (Johnson) and I have always been close, so I went in and pointed the bat and said, "This is on now, you can't say things like that." "You're sticking up for your mate."

I'll stab you, and you two won't make it out of Barbados alive. Brad Haddin recalls unpleasant exchange with irate Windies

Australia and West Indies are currently playing a two-match Test series, with Australia currently leading 1-0. The second game in the series will begin on December 8 in Adelaide after the Pat Cummins-led Australian team destroyed the West Indies by a big margin of 154 runs in the series opener in Perth.

During the current series, former Australia wicketkeeper-batsman Brad Haddin spoke out about a nasty altercation he had with West Indies bowler Sulieman Benn in 2009. Haddin, Benn, and former Australia quick Mitchell Johnson were all implicated in the incident, which happened during the opening Test of the summer of 2009–2010. 

The 6'5" Windies spinner was given a two-match suspension following the heated altercation, while Haddin and Johnson were given a warning.

When Benn collided with Johnson while attempting to field off his own bowling, the tension erupted. Following the collision, the two exchanged words, and shortly after, Haddin joined in the conflict. When Benn gestured to throw at the striker's end with Haddin standing well inside his crease, the former Australian wicketkeeper then pointed his bat in Benn's direction.

While providing commentary for the first Test on Triple M, Haddin spoke extensively about the confrontation.

Haddin recalled the incident and said, "He used to want to sledge us but he really didn't want us to hear which wasn't a great character trait. 

Then, as we were about to leave for the T20 World Cup, he said, "You two won't make it out of Barbados alive; I will stab you." I apologise, and at that point it started to mist, and I'm not really sure what occurred after that.

Jonno (Johnson) and I have always been close, so I went in and pointed the bat and said, "This is on now, you can't say things like that." "You're sticking up for your mate."
