Haddin returns to Australia ODI squad

29 February 2012 04:10

Brad Haddin, George Bailey and Nathan Lyon have been included in Australia's 15-man one-day international squad to tour the West Indies.

But with selectors opting to name every member of the ODI squad in the Twenty20 one, with the exception of Michael Clarke and Haddin who have both retired from the shortest form of the game, there was no room for several players from Australia's most recent T20 matches.

Aaron Finch, Travis Birt, Mitch and Shaun Marsh, James Faulkner and veteran Brad Hogg will all miss the trip to the Caribbean, as Shane Watson, Lyon, Mike Hussey, James Pattinson and Peter Forrest have been included in their place.

The ODI squad also did not have room for fast bowlers Ryan Harris and Mitchell Starc who have both played for Australia in the triangular series with India and Sri Lanka.

"This completes a well-balanced squad and it is anticipated that most players will receive good opportunities to show their worth," said National Selection Panel chairman John Inverarity.

"Shane Watson and Mike Hussey come back into the T20 squad to provide a great deal of experience and power to the batting line-up."

Inverarity added that none of Finch, Birt nor Marsh could consider themselves currently in Australia's best T20 team.

"If we were to select our best T20 team to play next week the top seven in order would be Watson, Warner, Mike Hussey, David Hussey, Bailey, Wade and Christian," Inverarity added.

"Hence, there was simply no room on this occasion for Shaun Marsh, Travis Birt and Aaron Finch."

Forrest is only in the T20 squad as back-up and unlikely to play unless there is an injury, while Hogg's omission should not be seen as the end for him said Inverarity, with selectors still considering him for Australia's ICC World Twenty20 squad later this year.

Australia ODI squad:
Michael Clarke (c), Shane Watson (vc), George Bailey, Daniel Christian, Xavier Doherty, Peter Forrest, Brad Haddin, Ben Hilfenhaus, David Hussey, Michael Hussey, Brett Lee, Nathan Lyon, Clint McKay, James Pattinson, Matthew Wade, David Warner.

Australia T20 squad:
