ICC World Cup: Australian keeper Brad Haddin hints at quitting ODIs after WC
Brisbane: Acknowledging that it would be great to sign off from one-day cricket if his team wins the cricket World Cup, Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has said he has not decided on a date when he will retire but is close to hanging up his boots in the 50-overs format.
37-year-old Haddin, who was part of Australia's 2007 and 2011 World Cup campaigns, believes that his day of reckoning in ODIs is near.
The fact that he has not been at his best of form in the last few innings has also added to the speculation about his retirement.

"I haven't really thought about when I'm going to pull the pin but it obviously looks like I haven't got many one-day games in front of me," Haddin was quoted as saying on the Cricket Australia website.
"From my point of view, I'm just enjoying this whole campaign of a World Cup. It would be good to be around in a month's time at the MCG for the finale but I'm just enjoying this tournament.
"Obviously it would be a great way to sign off from one-day cricket but I haven't really thought about when I'm going to pull the pin -- but it's getting close, definitely from one-dayers."
