Australia and Sri Lanka (and soon India) have been faced with losing the players that have made their Test teams successful. How do teams counter the decline that comes with a less talented generation of players following a team with champions? I keep reading that those teams should have been 'succession planning'. It sounds like business jargon nonsense to me. More of my thoughts on this are at Success and succession planning Declaration Game
Is decline just part of the natural order, or can teams maintain success without the stars but using different strategies?
