Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin yesterday said that he has been dropped, not rested, from the one-day squad to face India and Sri Lanka and conceded it will be tough for him to win back his place.

Selectors said they had left Haddin out of the 14-man squad for the first three games of the tri-nation series to give him a rest after the 4-0 Test whitewash of India, but the 34-year-old had a different take.

"I think any time you're out of the Australian cricket team I think you're dropped," he told Sky Sports Radio.
"You give another guy an opportunity to take your spot and you've got to look if they do well, you could find it hard to get back in the team," he added.
