Matthew Hayden retires from all forms of cricket
Brisbane: Former Australia Test opener Matthew Hayden has decided to retire from all forms of cricket, adding the Twenty20 version of the game to the Test and international one-day formats he stopped playing in 2010.
The 40-year-old Hayden said Thursday after “lengthy discussions” he won’t play a second season for the Brisbane Heat in the Twenty20 Big Bash League and says he’ll now help promote the team.
Hayden also played for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League in 2010. He then took a break before joining the Heat as their marquee player for the inaugural season in the eight-team, city-based competition last year.
Hayden played 103 Tests for Australia, hitting 30 centuries with a top score of 380 and an average of 50.73.
