Haddin feels he has been dropped from ODIs

Australia's wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has said he feels like he has been dropped from the ODI side rather than rested. And Haddin believes that he could find it hard to force his way back into the one-day squad if his replacement Matthew Wade performs strongly in the first few games of the tri-series with India and Sri Lanka.

Australia's national selector John Inverarity said on Monday that Haddin deserved to put his feet up after a gruelling schedule of Tests over the past few months. However, he also said the selection panel had an open mind about who would keep wicket for the remainder of the one-day series, the squad having only been named for the first three matches.

"I think anytime you're out of the Australian Cricket team you're dropped," Haddin said 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."

Haddin, 34, last year retired from Twenty20 internationals but remained part of Australia's Test and one-day setup. However, a summer in which he failed to have a major impact with the bat and initially made some errors behind the stumps has left Haddin under pressure to hold his place, although he is expected to be one of the two keepers who will take part in the Test tour of the West Indies in April.

He will captain the Prime Minister's XI in a one-day game against Sri Lanka in Canberra on Friday. Wade, 24, will make his ODI debut against India at the MCG on Sunday.

    @Nightwing32... Healy was dumped... Played a poor series against SL & Zimb & spat his dummy out when he wasn't allowed to play in Brisbane for a final fairwell... Gilly batted well in Bris allowing us to get a good win... & yes, Haddin is crying foul after poor series against SL, SA, NZ & India... He's been given enough rope to hang himself - unless he does a 'Punter' his days are being ticked off... The writing is on the wall...

    Geez....Just finished watching the T20 match. Bye Brad. Wade is a mega superior batsman. He displayed a 360 degree arrangement of shot making. His keeping...to the spinners on a tacky track was first rate. He has huge potential.....plus...yes...more pluses. His positive banter with the bowlers was great and must have been driving the Indian batsmen nuts. We just need Inveriarity to make the big call. Personally, I'd take Wade and Neville to the West Indies!

  • POSTED BY Nightwing32 on | February 1, 2012, 6:41 GMT

    Like I said. He's not crying foul. He just feels like every Australian players feels when they aren't in a squad, they feel dropped. Players don't like resting. Siddle didn't want to do, no one does. He's just saying that he feels like he's been dropped. He will be in the Windies but maybe it will help just mentally for Brad. If push comes to shove we can have Wade for the T20 and ODIs while Haddin for the Tests until he retires like they did with Gilchrist and Heals.

    For too long, the australian selectors have placed their faith on Brad Haddin who ought to have placed a price tag on his wicket. Most times, Brad Haddin had batted as if his place is guaranteed for several years. It is a good decision now that the selectors have given Haddin a short "rest" and indirectly conveyed the message to him that he can no longer take things for granted.

  • POSTED BY getaclue on | February 1, 2012, 3:59 GMT

    since the World Cup Haddin has had 10 innings for 100 runs at an average of 11 and strike rate of 66 with a best score of 23. 5 times opening and 5 times down the order. He has definately been dropped and rightly so.

  • POSTED BY zenboomerang on | February 1, 2012, 3:05 GMT

    Not sure why Haddin is crying foul?... Healy was dumped as ODI keeper 3 years before finally being dumped in Tests at the same age - 34... & that was against a much poorer keeper though much better batter in Gilly... Haddins keeping has been average, to say the least, while his batting has been terrible for the last 12 months - too much a passenger & not a contributor... Time to rotate...

    I don't see him blaming anyone bar himself. He's just saying how it is. Personally I've seen Matthew Wade and there are better keepers in Australia and Haddin is one of them but that's personal opinion. Hopefully Haddin will be their for the Ashes. People have short memories because he did keep on debut with a broken finger, bailed Australia out so many times against South Africa, England and Pakistan in tests but no people just have short memories. I hope Wade does really well though.

  • POSTED BY Gizza on | February 1, 2012, 0:01 GMT

    Dropping a non-performing player when the team is winning and encouraging new talent to step in and step up is good sign of proactive selectors. Inverarity is on the ball. Doing this or at least dropping non-performing players from a failing side is something other teams could learn from and replicate.

    Haddin should be dropped completely from all international formats. It is more than apparent that Wade is a better wicketkeeper and batsman. Wade should be given an extended run to prove himself without the threat of Haddin being recalled for a few bad performances. I just don't see the logic in persisting with Haddin.

  • POSTED BY Timmuh on | January 31, 2012, 21:43 GMT

    He won´t be there for 2015, the next time a limited overs result has any importance. Paine (if he stops breaking fingers) or Wade probably will be, its time for both of them to get regular games at limited overs level as part of building to the next World Cup. Haddin has been good since Gilchrist´s retirement and sometimes held to an impossible comparison, but his form has dropped and he needs to hold catches at Shield level to hold his spot for the West Indies tour.

    To all the Brad haddin knockers out there, you have obviously forgotten he has made test hundreds. It seems to be the same hysteria with spinners since Shane Warne retired we can't find another record breaking spinner. Adam Gilchrist was a once in a lifetime player. He could make it into the team as a batsman, the fact that he could keep was a bonus, although I don't think he was the greatest keeper I saw, but then again he replaced Ian Healy who was such a skilled gloveman. Brad Hadding has replaced Gilchrist and has done a sound job with both Gloves and bat, including, like Healy centuries. I think he has served his country very well , more than what was required. But he is no Adam Gilchrist, no is or will be. so deserved his spot. He has been in indifferent form this summer, so it is a good thing for him to go back to domestic cricket to rediscover his form. But It is unreasonable to expect him to be another Gilchrist

  • POSTED BY MitenD on | January 31, 2012, 18:16 GMT

    Haddin's only in the team because he is a top wicket keeper. His batting is too inconsistent to warrant him a place in the side. Now that his keeping is sub par, ofcourse it's time to give a younger player a go.

  • POSTED BY torsha on | January 31, 2012, 16:21 GMT

    It's okay Hads, you're Australia's best current wicketkeeper by far. Tim Paine can't bat and probably needs to amputate that finger. By the time Matthew Wade becomes good you'll be retired so don't worry...

    Also, since when does a couple of dropped catches mean 'diaster galore'? If dropping catches indicate that, the whole Indian team should be cut. They only took the ones going straight towards them

  • POSTED BY on | January 31, 2012, 9:12 GMT

    The pressure is all on Haddin, he's not a Gilchrist like replacement. He's worse than some other batsmen-keepers. If Clarke, Ponting and Hussey, all failed, whose gonna bail them out? Gilchrist would. But Haddin, he'll play recklessly. His playing days are numbered. You can't overly on the BIG 3. Ponting and Hussey have a good two years left in them. Only Clarke is the last man standing.

    Brad Haddin has said he feels like he has been dropped from the ODI side rather than rested??? If that is true, he is fully deserved to be dropped. This is great news for all Aussie cricket fans. We will be even happier if he is dropped from the test side as well.

  • POSTED BY MuhammadIqbal on | January 31, 2012, 7:54 GMT

    I think Haddan must concentrate on his performance and avoid to give comments which may create problem for him. He is very good player and if he show his performance he may back in one day team .Other wise he will lose his place from test cricket team. I think in this age he must focus on test cricket and give chance to other players in one day and T 20.

  • POSTED BY FatBoysCanBat on | January 31, 2012, 7:37 GMT

    Of course he feels he has been dropped because he hasn't done anything that warrants him being rested - not to mention the fact he has been dropped. Haddin's best years were when he was stuck playing Pura Cup/Sheffield Shield while Gilchrist was the country's gloveman. By the time Haddin came in he just wasn't the same. A talent like Wade does not come around every year or two so Aussie have to use him while he is in his prime which means cutting ties with Brad Haddin.

  • POSTED BY wix99 on | January 31, 2012, 7:31 GMT

    I think Australia has rested its main wicketkeeper for some of the limited overs games almost every season. It is not unusual. I think Haddin feels his place is under pressure and perhaps selectors haven't clearly communicated their intentions to Haddin.

  • POSTED BY Ozcricketwriter on | January 31, 2012, 6:49 GMT

    And he should be dropped too. The selectors are just being nice, and effectively putting Wade on notice. If Wade doesn't perform, Haddin is a chance to return. Yet if Wade does as well as he is capable of, it is goodbye Haddin forever.

  • POSTED BY CricSpirit on | January 31, 2012, 6:34 GMT

    My openion Brad Haddin is lucky to be in the squad after his performace in the recent past. He is no where compared to Gilly and in my openion Mathew Wade should be given a fare amount of games to prove that he deserve to be in the ODI squad. Australia has a lot of talent in the domestic circuit and Cricket Australia should think for a better test Wkt Keeper too.

  • POSTED BY satish619chandar on | January 31, 2012, 6:29 GMT

    Need to be looked whether Wade is an able replacement.. He can be a better keeper for sure.. Playing spin is the key.. We got many teams opening the bowling with spinner these days.. He cant get away if he cant play spin better.. Aussies for some reason making their keeper open bat.. Better they can stick with Warner and other opener and keep the keeper in middle order to allow them play in their natural position..

  • POSTED BY satish619chandar on | January 31, 2012, 5:15 GMT

    Hard to fit him in ODI team.. Not much useful in middle overs.. As opener, he can only slog and not play proper shots.. I dont remember a proper cricketing shot even in tests from Haddin.. No cover drives at all.. Thats why he usually gets out slashing down the track.. When u dont get runs in proper shots, u go for slog.. When u dont get the slog right, u are Haddin!!

    I would leave Haddin out of all of the one day series. Give Wade a full series to show his potential. It is hard to judge someone after 3 matches, but if you guarantee him the whole series he just has those few more matches to find his feet at international level, and then the selectors will have more of a conclusive idea about his credentials. And if Wade goes amazingly after his 3 games, how could you then tell him "Sorry mate, you've been brilliant but now your spot goes to an out of form mid-30s bloke". Give Haddin a full rest and time to regain his form out of the public eye in Shield cricket.

    If Haddin had performed well, there'd be no need to try a potential replacement, he only has himself to blame there. Even if Haddin had been playing well, it's a good idea to give another wicketkeeper a chance to gain some experience at international level so there'd be a good replacement if Haddin was injured. Playing Wade is good either way.

    Nothing that Haddin said sounds incorrect, nor unjustified. If a guy has had patchy performances and given the selectors justification to look elsewhere, and that guy performs, then why shouldn't he have the chance to continue? Competition for places is what has been missing from Australian cricket for the last few years. You don't want to chop and change every game, but if Haddin has to fight his way back in then maybe we'll see less fumbles behind the stumps and a better batting performance than the one that has seen his Test average drop by 3 points in the last year. I didn't hear Haddin coming out and complaining about Nathan Hauritz being dropped last year, and he wasn't able to get back in despite an amazing season and his replacements being dropped after 2 matches. So no sympathy here!

Wade...correctly...because of his age should get first opportunity. You could make it easy if you did the right thing and simply retired. Neville has also looked very good and Ronchi and Hartley are class acts behind the stumps. Expect to see Wade improve match-by-match as he adapts to huge crowds and keeping in high tense situations.

    He promised so much as a batsmen in test matches that I hope he is gone from that format. I don't really care about the one-day cricket or Twenty20, silly cricket in my mind but unfortunately very popular, especially Twenty20. The standard had been set by Gilchrist and a keeper must be able to bat well also, in this department Brad Haddin has failed. Throw Matt Wade in at the deep end and see how he goes, keep the youth coming.
