Haddin`s Australia Test career in doubtSydney: Australian wicket-keeper Brad Haddin may have played his last Test after withdrawing Friday from the series against the West Indies for undisclosed family reasons.

Haddin shocked the team before the one-day matches in the Caribbean by returning home but the veteran had been expected to be available for the three-Test series that begins next month.

"Cricket Australia fully supports Brad`s decision to remain in Australia and sends its best wishes to him and his family at this time," Cricket Australia general manager Pat Howard said.

The 34-year-old had lost his one-day place to Matthew Wade, who is 10 years younger, but selector Rod Marsh had indicated Haddin remained first choice for the Tests.

However, his position for Australia`s Tests against South Africa in November must now be in doubt with Wade expected to make his Test debut on April 7 in Barbados.

New South Wales wicket-keeper Peter Nevill, who replaced Haddin when he returned from the one-day series, will stay with the Australian squad for the remainder of the tour.
