Sydney, (Agencies): Criticism continues to trouble Australia's selectors in the run-up to the World Cup despite a comprehensive 6-1 one-day drubbing of England being wrapped up at the weekend.

The four-man panel headed up by lawyer Andrew Hilditch has been under almost constant fire for their perceived mistreatment of players and confusing selections, particularly during the Ashes humiliation.

The latest blast came from former test player Ian Healy after captain Michael Clarke, Player of the Series Shane Watson and experienced quick bowler Brett Lee were rested for the final match in Perth on Sunday.

"I haven't seen Cricket Australia this fragmented for a long time," Healy, now a television pundit, said during the broadcast at the WACA.

"They've alienated some senior players, not just players in general, but senior players like Brett Lee and Michael Clarke.

"They've given the public some ammunition to have another go at Michael Clarke for wanting a rest even though it was 100 per cent the selectors that did it."

Clarke, the acting captain while Ricky Ponting recovers from a finger fracture, has struggled to get the backing of the nation and was booed onto the field during the one-day series.

Hilditch's declaration that the selectors had done "a very good job" during the Ashes perplexed many, as did his hailing of Brad Haddin as Australia's best wicketkeeper in all forms of the game, only for the righthander to be dropped for T20 matches.

The rotation system has drawn criticism throughout the Australian summer even though resting Mitchell Johnson before the third Ashes test looked like a stroke of genius when the paceman returned to skittle England in the hosts' win in Perth.
