Australia batsman and wicket-keeper, Brad Haddin, declared his retirement from One-Day International (ODI) cricket on Sunday. He will, however, continue to represent his country in Tests.

The 37-year-old was a part of Australia’s World Cup 2015 team recently that emerged victorious for an unprecedented fourth time, and he believes that this was the ideal time to call a time on his career.

“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 Australia’s official website.

“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,” he continued.

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

Haddin featured in 126 ODIs throughout career, scoring 3122 runs at an average of 31.53. Besides, he gloved 170 catches and 11 stumpings behind the wickets.
