Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin retires from one-day international cricket
Canberra, Australia ( Agencies + DIPLOMAT.SO) – Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has announced his retirement from one-day international cricket.
The 37-year-old will continue to play Test cricket, but he leaves the ODI arena on a high note following Australia’s home World Cup win at the end of March.
Haddin played 126 ODIs for the Baggy Greens after making his debut against Zimbabwe in 2001, before taking a permanent place behind the stumps following the retirement of Adam Gilchrist in 2008.
“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 told cricket.com.
“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 Australian ranked number one in the world and I am proud of everything we have achieved.”
Haddin’s tally of 181 dismissals places him behind only Gilchrist (472) and Ian Healy (233) in ODIs for Australia.For more news and stories, join us on Facebook,Twitter , or contact us through our Email: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
