Melbourne:

Cricket Australia said that  veteran wicketkeeper Brad Haddin will not return to the Australian tour of the West Indies due to family reasons.

On March 15, Haddin was granted leave from the tour only days after being named to the Australia team for a three-test series beginning April 7 in Barbados.

Cricket Australia general manager Pat Howard said on Friday that wicketkeeper/batsman Peter Nevill, called in as cover when Haddin returned to Australia, will stay with the squad for the remainder of the tour.

Matthew Wade, who had replaced Haddin in the Twenty20 and one-day sides, will likely make his test debut in the opening Barbados match.
