New South Wales wicket-keeper/batsman Peter Nevill will join the squad in coming days and Brad’s return will be determined in due course.
CA National Selector John Inverarity said: “Brad Haddin is in transit returning to Australia for personal reasons and has the full support of CA, the NSP and his team mates in so doing. We hope that Brad will be able to re-join the squad in the West Indies in the not too distant future.
“The NSP has selected Peter Nevill as Brad’s replacement and Peter will head to the West Indies as soon as possible. Peter has just completed an outstanding season with New South Wales, both with the gloves and the bat. He was the overwhelming choice of his fellow Sheffield Shield cricketers as wicket-keeper in the Australian Cricketers’ Association All Star Team of the Year announced at the State Cricket Awards this week.”
