Lehmann rules out rotation for Oz pace bowlers in Adelaide Test
Johannesburg: Australian coach Darren Lehmann has pronounced Australia`s controversial bowler rotation policy dead and buried and said pace spearhead Ryan Harris would not be rested from next week`s second Ashes Test in Adelaide.
According to Sport24, the coach has also counselled outspoken Australian opener David Warner, who labelled Trott poor and weak during the home side`s first Test triumph in Brisbane.
Lehmann scotched speculation that Harris would be rested from the Adelaide Test starting on Thursday, with only a three-day turnaround before the third Test in Perth, the report said.
Lehmann further said after trouncing the tourists in the series opener by 381 runs, Australia`s challenge was to prove their consistency, according to the report.
The drop-in Adelaide pitch is expected to be a batsman-friendly strip, in contrast to the bouncy Brisbane wicket in the first Test, and Lehmann said Australia would adjust their plans accordingly, the report mentioned.
