You, by contrast, are so cutting edge for thinking they should be rested. You are really on the razor's edge mate.
I think we have seen where pulling blokes in and pulling blokes out has gotten us
So cutting edge, you are
I'm not trying to be cutting edge at all. I hate the idea of genuine rotation in Test matches - even the young bowlers tbh. But the fact of the matter is that Australia have too much cricket scheduled, so if we don't want players burnt out or injured for the Tests then we'll need to rest them from ODIs sometimes. This isn't even a new thing; resting and rotation in "live" ODIs has been happening for years, and the selectors stopped really caring about the actual results of these series years ago.
