Brad Haddin heading home

Published Add your comment

Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin is returning home early from the Ashes tour for family reasons, it has been announced.

Haddin played the opening Test of the five-match series against England at Cardiff but missed the second match at Lord's for personal reasons, with Peter Nevill replacing him behind the stumps.

Although Haddin declared himself available for the third Test, Nevill retained his place for both Edgbaston and Trent Bridge as England won back-to-back matches to take an unassailable 3-1 lead and reclaim the Ashes.

The final Test takes place at The Oval next week but Haddin will play no part in that match either, it has been confirmed.

Andrew Ramsey, who is a senior writer for Cricket Australia, wrote on this on his Twitter account:

The 37-year-old Haddin has played 66 Tests for Australia since making his debut in 2008, scoring over 3200 runs with four centuries.
