Aussie wicketkeeper Haddin retires from ODIs

2015-05-18 09:40

SYDNEY — Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has announced his retirement from One-Day Internationals, Cricket Australia said yesterday.

Haddin made the announcement ahead of his departure for Australia’s Test tours of the West Indies and the United Kingdom today.

Haddin (37) has played in 126 One-Day Internationals in a career that began against Zimbabwe at Hobart in January 2001 and ended in Australia’s ICC Cricket World Cup final victory over New Zealand in Melbourne this year.

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

He scored 3 122 runs at an average of 31,53 with a top score of 110.

“I have had a privileged One-Day career and I have been fortunate enough to be involved in three Cricket World Cups and now is the right time to walk away,” Haddin said. “Not many players get to write a script like mine at the end of their careers and I have been lucky enough to do just that after winning a World Cup on home soil.

“I leave the team with Australia ranked number one in the world and I am proud of everything we have achieved.”

Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland said: “Australian cricket congratulates Brad on a fine ODI career. Throughout the years he well and truly maintained Australia’s proud tradition of outstanding wicketkeeper-batsmen in limited overs cricket. He leaves big shoes to fill as a talented player and important senior figure within the team.” — AFP
