Warner backs ‘controversial’ Oz rotation policy for pace men
Sydney: Australia opener David Warner has backed Cricket Australia’s (CA) controversial rotation policy for fast bowlers, saying it has proved to be beneficial in past.
CA chairman of selectors John Inverarity had said on Monday that fast bowler Mitchell Starc was likely to be rested for the Boxing Day Test match against Sri Lanka as a preventive measure.
Warner believes the decision to rest Starc would help him avoid injuries and he could play more Tests in future, News.com.au reports.
The swashbuckling batsman said no players wants to miss a Test match if fit but sometimes they need to realize that taking timely rests would help them in a long run.
Warner said pace man Ben Hilfenhaus played in the Hobart Test and got injured, which just proves that applying a cautious approach with fast bowlers is beneficial for them.
