The only problem with benchy's argument - which I mostly agree with - is that it doesn't actually look like there's an imminent injury to Starc since they tossed up resting him for Sydney instead of here. Otherwise, yeah, we've got long-term considerations with such a talented but young bowler.

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Starc and Johnson can be better than each other on their day, or worse. I really don't have a problem with this rotation on that basis. If we had 3 pace bowlers who were clearly fit and our best options, then yes they should be playing each test.

Sorry, what's he in the danger zone for? Sounds like the Top Gun soundtrack.
Why don't we just admit we don't rate SL and we're giving a few blokes a run for the Ashes?

Sri Lanka looks like a beautiful country. Hoping to go there next year.
Anything to get away from Burgey.
And I'm lead to believe they're all small. So those little Sri Lankans should look up to me like a god with my 6 foot frame.

I mean, they trusted the science and rested Hilf didn't they? That worked well.
I think it's time we got a full blown explanation as to what "the science" is, frankly. Because ATM the only science in play is the wonder of how a bloke like Pat Howard:
a. Walks around with his head up his own arse; and
b. Seems to be dictating to the selectors and captain who plays and when, based on what a bloke tells him when he gives him a call and asks how he feels.
Thought the science of the telephone was pretty well settled tbh.
