    Goodness...you don't spend much time in Cricket chat and you find some massive Cutting hate.

    Certainly bowling the best he has in all his career, and given the lolly bag way like they are handing out caps at the moment, it puzzling to think he's only played one international game this season.

    With the player management/resting policy, I'd like to know whether it's just a case of six of one, and a half dozen of the other? Harris gets rested for the last Test in the Carribean, but following that he's been out of action for 6-9 months so far anyway. Watson gets pulled from the Champions League in India, and then gets injured in his first over back for NSW at AB Field. Hilf gets rested in Perth, and gets injured the next Test in Hobart. Starc missed a Test that he *could* have played in Melbourne, then broke down (minor calf injury) a couple of weeks later.

    If bowlers are still missing matches after being rested, would it really make much difference to have them play until they get injured? At least then there would be some continuity for the players, and they'd know the pecking order. Maybe even the continuity and unbroken sequence of matches may result in less injuries?

    Does anyone know whether there's a T20 against the WI in Sydney this summer?

    The rotation policy for the likes of Starc and Pattinson is designed to basically avoid serious stress injures in the back and leg, as opposed to soft tissue injures that can hardly be avoided. they're making no promises that rotation means injury free forever, but simply avoiding serious injury that can be prevented. so no

    To me, Starc, Pattinson and Cummins are the ones that need to be managed, as they are both young and haven't done a lot of bowling in their careers

    The others however, should just play

    And if you look at who they're rotating, that's what they've done for the most part. Only Starc and Pattinson have missed matches they were 100% for, as far as I'm aware.

    When they rested Ryan Harris he'd been playing through a virus and hadn't recovered in time to last through the next Test.

    When they rested Peter Siddle he had a tight hamstring and didn't want to risk going a bowler down in Perth.

    When they rested Hilfenhaus he had a minor knee complaint, and figured it wasn't worth the risk of him breaking down (plus it was a nice excuse to get him out of the side).


    In the past they may have played through the niggles, but with the depth of fast bowling options we've got, the selectors probably thought little was lost by leaving them out when they weren't 100%. Plus it gives guys like Jackson Bird experience for when someone does break down for a longer period.

    Exactly, no one above the age of 25 is being rested from test matches. You're yelling at clouds.

    I'm with you to some extent on the Test 'rotation' but there is way too much cricket played to not rest blokes from ODIs. You're getting kidding yourself if you think otherwise. If Clarke got injured playing five ODIs against Sri Lanka and then had to miss Tests against India it'd be absolutely absurd.
