Sydney: Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin thinks that he has been dropped from the ODI squad and it will be very difficult for him to get his position back in the team if his replacement Matthew Wade performs well in the first three ODIs of the tri-series involving Australia, India and Sri Lanka.
Though Australia`s national selector John Inverarity said Haddin has been rested after the demanding Test schedule, the wicketkeeper is not convinced.
"I think anytime you`re out of the Australian Cricket team you`re dropped," Haddin was quoted as saying by Cricinfo on the Sydney radio station 2KY.
"You give another guy an opportunity to take your spot. If they do well you could find it hard to get back in the team but that`s the way it is and I`ve just got to deal with that.”
"We need to see how young Matty Wade goes at this level. It`s seen as a good opportunity to play him and from my point of view, if he does well there`s no guarantee you`ll get your spot. Once you`ve given it up you give someone an opportunity and you might not play again ... If you give your spot up, you`ve got no right to walk straight back in."
