Australia Wicketkeeper Brad Haddin retires from ODI cricket

MELBOURNE: Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has announced his retirement from one-day international cricket as he prepares to fly out for Australia’s test tours of the West Indies and Britain on Monday.


Haddin’s 126-match one-day international career began against Zimbabwe at Hobart in January 2001 and ended with Australia s Cricket World Cup victory over New Zealand at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on March 29.

The 37-year-old Haddin claimed 170 catches and 11 stumpings in his ODI career, leaving him with the third-most dismissals for a wicketkeeper in Australia behind Adam Gilchrist and Ian Healy.

Haddin scored 3,122 runs at an average of 31.53 with a top score of 110. Haddin says “now is the right time to walk away.”
