Haddin signs up for Pakistan Super League


Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has signed up to play in the Pakistan Super League, which will be held in the UAE between 4 and 24 February next year.

Haddin, who recently retired from international cricket, and veteran batsman Brad Hodge are the only two Australian players signed up for the PSL so far.

The 37 year-old Haddin quit ODI cricket after the Australia's World Cup triumph in March while he walked away from Test cricket after the Aussies lost the recent Ashes series in England.

However he did confirm that he will play for the Sydney Sixes in the T20 Big Bash League later this year and has now thrown his name in the PSL hat.

Other international players already signed up for the tournament are Kevin Pietersen, Luke Wright and Tim Bresnan while the West Indies' Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Dwayne Smith and Sunil Narine will also be seen at the event.
