New Delhi, Sep 9: Wicketkeeper Brad Haddin announced his retirement from Test and domestic first-class cricket on Wednesday, joining the exodus of veteran players from the Australian side after its Ashes loss.
The 37-year-old Haddin, who didn’t make his test debut until he was 30, played 66 tests, scoring 3,266 runs at an average of 32.98.
“Brad was a vital player during an important period in Australian cricket,” Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland said. “Brad’s strong performances and positive influence on the team were all the more remarkable given he was dealing with the serious illness suffered by his daughter Mia.”
