Retirement XI of 2015


7. Brad Haddin (Australia): (WK)

Retirement XI of 2015The former Aussie Wicket-keeper batsman, Brad Haddin belonged to the breed of Australian players who are renowned for their ruthless attitude on the field. Haddin was always very vocal behind the stumps while his aggression in-front of the stumps made him the apparent heir of his predecessor, Adam Craig Gilchrist. The 38-year-old was epitomized as a master tactician and his role in the changing room earned him a lot of accolades and respect from the fellow cricketers, a thing for which every cricketer strives hard. The highlight of the right-hander’s career was the Ashes 2013/14 in which he blasted 491 runs at a splendid average of 61.62 and helped his side whitewash the arch-rivals, England. The rise of Peter Nevill in the Australian ranks and fall in his own form compelled him to hang up his boots and Ashes 2015 was the last time when he wore the Baggy green.

Haddin scored 6,790 runs and affected 468 dismissals in the Baggy green.
