Cricket Australia pays tribute to Haddin

  • Cricket Australia (CA) has paid tribute to wicketkeeper-batsman Brad Haddin after he announced his retirement from international cricket at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) here on Wednesday.

    The uncompromising Haddin will continue to play Twenty20 cricket for the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League (BBL).

    CA CEO James Sutherland praised Haddin for the vital leadership role he played during a significant transition in the team when a number of all-time greats retired. Haddin waited until he was 30 to debut in Test cricket following the retirement of Adam Gilchrist and quickly established himself as a tenacious batsman and glovesman, playing 66 Tests. (Source: IANS)
