Sydney:

Wicketkeeper Brad Haddin will return home from Australia's tour to the West Indies after not recovering sufficiently from a broken finger, Cricket Australia said on Saturday.

Haddin broke the ring finger on his right hand during the first Test of Australia's tour and played on with the injury through the final two Test matches and the first one-day international.

CA said Haddin will leave Grenada on Friday to continue his recovery in Australia.

Luke Ronchi, who made his international debut in Australia's Twenty20 game against the West Indies last week in Barbados, will remain with the squad until the end of the tour, CA said.

"Brad's injury has now got to the point where it is limiting his capabilities as a player and therefore he is going home to seek appropriate further treatment," Australian team physiotherapist Justin Steer said in a statement.
