New Delhi: Australia cricket received yet another jolt with veteran wicket-keeper Brad Haddin announcing his retirement from international cricket on Wednesday.

The 37-year-old, thus, became the fourth member of Australia's 2015 Ashes squad, which suffered defeat against traditional rivals England, to end his career.

Earlier, their long-standing skipper Michael Clarke, opening batsman Chris Rogers and veteran pace-bowler Ryan Harris retired from international cricket.

Besides, all-rounder Shane Watson also announced his retirement from Test cricket.

During their troubled 2015 Ashes tour, Haddin missed the second Test at the Lord's due to family reasons and subsequently lost the position to Peter Nevill.

The New South Wales player had retired from One-Day Internationals after helping Australia to their fifth World Cup title in May at home.

Haddin made his international debut in a ODI against Zimbabwe in 2001 in Hobart. He is expected to continue to play for Sydney Sixers in the KFC Big Bash League.
