Australia Wicket Keeper Brad Haddin has also announced his retirement from ODI cricket just like his Skipper Michael Clarke. This has been on expected lines as Brad Haddin is already 37 and a couple of months back there were strong rumours that he was retiring from Test Cricket.

Brad Haddin finishes his ODI career with 126 appearances for the Aussies. This right-handed Wicket Keeper batsman has scored 3122 runs at an average of 31.53 with the help of a couple of centuries and 16 50s. Haddin had made his ODI debut in 2001 against Zimbabwe at Hobart but his opportunities were limited because of the presence of the great Adam Gilchrist. After Gilchrist’s retirement, Brad Haddin sealed his spot in the Australian team but at times lost his place to Matthew Wade and a couple of others.

In the recently concluded ICC World Cup 2015, Brad Haddin had little to do with the bat, scoring 126 runs in five innings at a healthy average of 42.00, and a highest score of 43. Behind the stumps, Brad Haddin had taken as many as 16 catches in the ICC World Cup 2015. Both his ODI centuries of his career had come against New Zealand – 109 at Sydney in 2009 and 110 at Hamilton in 2010.

Regarded as an acrobatic Wicket Keeper, Brad Haddin has taken 170 catches and has 11 stumpings to his name in the 126 ODIs that he has played. Haddin is likely to retire from all formats of the game following the upcoming Ashes Series.
