Wade replaces Haddin as Aus keeper for SA test

Wade replaces Haddin as Aus keeper for SA test

Matthew Wade has been named as Australia's wicketkeeper for the first cricket test against South Africa in a move that may mark the end of Brad Haddin's 43-test career.
The 24-year-old Wade was named Monday in Australia's 12-man squad for the test match which starts in Brisbane on Nov. 9. Haddin, 35, made his last test appearance for Australia against India in Sydney in January, missing its subsequent series in the West Indies for family reasons.
Wade played in the West Indies, stamping his mark on the series with a century in Dominica described by selection panel chairman John Inverarity as brilliant and match-defining.
The Australia squad includes four pace bowlers _ Ben Hilfenhaus, Peter Siddle, James Pattinson and Mitchel Starc _ and spinner Nathan Lyon.
