    by  • September 9, 2015 • Cricket

    Australian veteran wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has announced his retirement from Test cricket after a glorious 17-year first-class career.

    The 37-year-old has played 66 Tests and taken 262 catches for the baggy green since his debut in 2008 – is now walked away from the international career and first-class cricket.

    The New South Wales gloveman becomes the fifth player to say goodbye to the national team, after Michael Clarke, Ryan Harris, Chris Rogers and Shane Watson, who all retired from international cricket since losing the Ashes series 2-3.

    The wicketkeeper will be available for the Sydney Sixers in the Australia’s domestic Big Bash League and in other Twenty20 tournaments around the world.

    Haddin announced his One-day-international retirement back in May after claiming 181 dismissals in 126 matches.
