It means the 37-year-old leaves the ODI stage on the best possible note, with his final appearance being Australia’s World Cup final win over New Zealand at the MCG in March.
“I have had a privileged one-day career and I have been fortunate enough to be involved in three Cricket World Cups and now is the right time to walk away,” he said in a statement.
“Not many players get to write a script like mine at the end of their careers and I have been lucky enough to do just that after winning a World Cup on home soil.
“I leave the team with Australian ranked number-one in the world and I am proud of everything we have achieved.”
Haddin took over the mantle as Australia’s number one wicketkeeper from Adam Gilchrist and made a name for himself with both the gloves and the bat.
He claimed 188 dismissals in 14-year ODI career, placing him behind only Gilchrist and Ian Healy as Australia’s most successful wicketkeeper.
Haddin scored 3,122 runs at an average of 31.53, and made his highest score of 110 against New Zealand in 2010.
