Rested or Dropped? Haddin's omission a puzzle

Allrounder Shane Watson has weighed into the debate surround the ommission of wicketkeeper Brad Haddin from Australia's one day cricket side.

Watson says the selectors need to clarify whether Haddin's been dropped or rested.

The 34-year-old wicketkeeper has again left out of Australia's 14-strong squad for upcoming matches against India and Sri Lanak increasing speculation he's been dropped in favour of Matthew Wade.

Watson says Haddin is far from finished at international level and the uncertainty over his position might be part of the reason he's struggled to find form for Australia in recent months.
