    I mean ffs, ofcourse I want the best XI chosen every game, and ofcourse I'm frustrated that Starc and co can't play every game, however this is a temporary thing. This won't always be the case. In a few years time we'll have a bowling group which are all around 25, significant international exposure, and 8-10 years of test cricket ahead of them and able to play every game like the South African attack can.

    Well if it was very likely he'd get injured during the game, I would chose the resting, but I call bull**** on it.

    Why will he suddenly be risk free in Sydney, he'll be getting rusty by then. I know SCG is his home ground, but I'm a firm believer of Australia picking the best Test XI always especially when the series is still alive. Resting means that we are forever planning for the future and never 100% in the now.

    He will be risk free because his work load wouldn't be overflowing.

    And getting rusty? He'll have the same break between test matches as there is between home series. He'll go a week and half without playing test cricket. Pretty sure he'll remember how to bowl.

    It just annoys me more so for the fact that its Johnson who is being given a chance to represent his country when he should be at the shops buying lipstick at the Boxing Day sales.

    Yes I agree with that. It shouldn't be Johnson, no way.

    But I guess we need a leader of the attack...

    But end of the day Test cricket is like running a marathon. You can't expect to get through the 50 kms, if you haven't miles before and just being running on treadmill as you preparation.

    I don't disagree with the science aspects of injuries and resting. I just think they have gone over the top with resting and bowling restrictions. Bowlers aren't bowling fit going into FC and Test cricket and now resting is required to keep bowlers on the park for 8-12 years. Because they haven't given them to preparation to be bowling fit when they are young due to bowling restrictions.

    A week ia a long time in footy/test cricket. So what happens if we lose now at the G and it rains in Sydney - drawn series, but some fresh quicks just in time for the Big Bash Finalz..

    What happens if Starc plays in Melbourne, Australia bowl first, Starc develops stress fractures in his foot, it rains (more likely in Melbourne, let's face it), it's a draw, then we go to Sydney without Starc able to play, Sri Lanka win. Drawn series.

    What happens if Starc gets to do his job two weeks in a row and we win the series 3-0 gaining a ****load of confidence, further experience and we pretty much have Siddle, Starc and Pattinson locked in as our 3 premier quicks with a host of other bowlers not named Johnson in contention for an Ashes birth.

    No, but you also won't get bowling fit, if you only play every 2nd game with your actually fit to play either.

    It is about having a balance and they have the balance wrong between resting and getting young players bowling fit.

    The way they are trying to manage the bowlers they will reduce the 6 months injuries yes, but they are increasing injuries the short term 1-2 month injuries because they bowlers are never truly bowling fit to last five days of intensive Test cricket.

    Nope. That's when sports science kicks in OR more likely, one of the quicks breaks down playing a meaningless ODI or something.

    If I remember correctly Sreesanth broke down and he got to play the next game.
