Haddin injured for one-day series

Brad Haddin
Haddin has played 53 ODIs and 21 Twenty20 internationals

Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin will miss the Twenty20 and one-day series in England because of a fractured finger.

The 31-year-old suffered the injury to his left ring finger warming up before the third Ashes Test at Edgbaston.

He was replaced by Graham Manou in Birmingham but returned to play in the final two Tests.

Haddin will have surgery in Sydney on Thursday. Australia have not called up a replacement, so Tim Paine will take over for the series.

Australia will play two Twenty20 matches against England and seven one-day internationals.


Haddin's fitness for next month's ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa and the one-day series in India in October will be reviewed later, said Cricket Australia.

Paine, 24, has been called up after impressing as a wicketkeeper and top-order batsman for Tasmania. He scored 134 for Australia A against Pakistan A in in the third and decisive one-day match in Brisbane last month.
