Twitter reactions: Brad Haddin retires from ODIs

Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin announced his retirement from One-Day Internationals (ODI) on Sunday. His last ODI was the World Cup 2015 final in Melbourne which Australia won against New Zealand by seven wickets.

Haddin, 37, will continue playing Tests. The cricketer was quoted by Cricket Australia website as saying, “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. 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.

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

Over the years, Haddin has played scripted several memorable wins for Australia and filled the void left by the legendary Adam Gilchrist. He has 126 ODIs and effected 181 dismissals behind the stumps. Haddin has been known for his sledging tactics as well and his ODI retirement got mixed reactions from Twitter.
