Wicketkeeper Brad Haddin says he's been dropped, not rested from the Australian one-day cricket team and concedes he may never get his spot back.

The 34-year-old says his poor form has given Victoria's Matthew Wade an opportunity, even though national selector John Inverarity explained it as resting him after a heavy schedule.

Haddin says if Wade played well in the opening matches of the tri series against India and Sri Lanka which begins on Sunday he could be out of the team for good.
