We're not here to make up the numbers, get some experience, learn a few things then go home. We genuinely want to win every game and get as far as we can.
    My point is its not their best way to go far in this tournament.

    Better off learning how to play the spin or Harbhajan and Ojha, swing in the early overs from Zaheer and how to bowl to Dhoni and Yuvraj when they're going strong in a game where there is not much on the line.

    You don't get tired from 20 overs FFS. The objective behind the thinking may be right, but it isn't the best way to be successful.

    The only player I thought was being genuinely rested to prevent burnout was Bray, and he ended up playing anyway.

    O'Brien's quite seriously injured; he might not even play tonight. Johnston had an injury that he could have played with, but also could have aggrevated it by doing so so leaving him out was fair enough in the end.

    Hmm fair point, not sure I agree but okay.

    In any case, they only rested a few players with injuries.

    I think O'Brien will play, but Wilson will probably keep. He hit a fantastic knock while crocked on Monday so he's probably as good an option as we have even if he only has one leg.
